Elder abuse is any harm or neglect imposed upon an older adult, typically over 65 years old. This harm can be in the form of physical harm, but it also can occur in the form of financial harm via fraud or exploitation.
Elder abuse typically occurs because, as adults get older, they are less able to take care of themselves. As they get weaker, they often require assisted living care, either by nursing home facilities, hospitals, or at-home care by loved ones. It is during this period that they are most open to mistreatment, as attempts to take advantage of them may be met with minimal resistance.
It is important to note that elder abuse does not always mean physical harm —that is just one type of elder abuse. Some of the most common types of elder abuse includes:
