It can be hard to imagine that anyone would deliberately want to harm an elderly person, but unfortunately, elder abuse does occur. Some instances of elder abuse are intended to exploit the person financially; you’ve probably heard of scams targeting seniors. In other cases, caretakers simply don’t provide the basic necessities, like nutritious food, appropriate medication, safety, or assistance with hygiene. Help spread the word this June 15, which is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. If you see something, say something.
