Physical elder abuse can take place in many settings. Most commonly, it occurs when an elderly person is put in the care of someone else. The physical abuse can be direct, as in the form of hitting, pushing, withholding food or medication. It can also be indirect, as in the form of nursing home neglect, improper supervision leading to falling accidents, failure to provide proper care leading to malnutrition and dehydration.
Elder financial abuse is also far too common. Sometimes, elderly financial fraud is not obvious. A legitimate business pushes an individual into an unsuitable investment or commits some other form of misrepresentation or fraud. Other times, it is very clear, such as in cases involving outright theft of property and money.
Our team is committed to standing up for the rights of elderly people. We will hold abusers accountable for their actions.
