Elder Abuse Archives

Why do the elderly suffer more from financial abuse?

The elderly are certainly at risk when it comes to financial abuse. A lot of scams specifically target them. One part of the reason is that they often have excess money -- you can't scam someone who doesn't have what you want -- and scammers target their life savings. Another part of the issue, though, is that they really are more susceptible.

How can you help a loved one dealing with long-term abuse?

Elder abuse is one of the problems that the elderly may face when they're in the care of others. In the short-term, abuse might lead to small injuries or symptoms like dehydration or a change in behavior. However, as time goes on, the impact of long-term abuse becomes much more apparent.

Control is often the real goal of emotional abuse

Has your loved one suffered emotional abuse in a nursing home? Perhaps it never went beyond that, or maybe the emotional abuse was just the first step, and it then turned into financial or physical abuse as well. Regardless, you may find yourself wondering why it happened. Why would a staff member do such a thing?

Frailty impacts seniors in many ways

Do you ever feel like your elderly loved one -- an aging parent, perhaps -- is simply more frail than they used to be? You can't put your finger on a specific issue or a disorder, but you know what you see. They appear frail and at a high risk for injury. You worry about things that didn't seem like a big deal before, such as a simple fall in the kitchen.

4 tips to help avoid financial abuse

The elderly are fairly vulnerable when they are getting assistance from caregivers. They depend on these people. The unfortunate reality is that caregivers may attempt to take advantage of the situation for their own financial gain. It's important to know what signs to look for and what scams tend to target the elderly.
