What Is Elder Abuse?
Elder abuse refers to any intentional or negligent act by a person, often times a caregiver or family member to a vulnerable adult meant to inflict physical or financial harm. Furthermore, this abuse can happen anywhere but it most commonly occurs in the victim’s home, elderly care facility or hospital. These victims cannot help or defend themselves and depend on others to meet even their most basic needs. Here are the most common forms of abuse:
While one sign may not necessarily point out a sure sign of abuse, if something feels off and a few of these begin to occur you should contact a professional investigator. Unfortunately, too often these indicators of abuse are mistaken for normal mental and physical deterioration that come with age and abuse is accidentally ignored. Consequently, the abuse may go unnoticed for years.
- Bruises or abrasions could be hints of physical abuse.
- Bruises around breasts or genital area could be signs of sexual abuse
- Poor hygiene, weight loss and bedsores could be indicators of neglect
- Withdrawal from normal activities, out of character depression or changes of alertness could be signs of emotional abuse
- Unexplained purchases, unpaid bills, missing property and new authorizations could be indicators of financial abuse.
