Know the signs of elder abuse

NCOA  | Published on 6/13/2018
June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day — an important annual event that spotlights a devastating daily occurrence for millions of older adults.

According to the World Health Organization, about 1 in 6 older people experienced some form of abuse in the past year.

Too often, elder abuse goes unreported and untreated. One study estimated that only 1 in 14 cases of abuse are reported to authorities.

Often this is because the abuse is hidden or it is coming from someone close to the older adult. In almost 58% of elder abuse and neglect incidents, the perpetrator is a family member, according to the National Center on Elder Abuse. Most are adult children or spouses.
