In a continuing the last week’s discussion of elder abuse Therese Markow and Paul Greenwood expand their discussion on elder abuse to delve into the physical abuse and neglect that happens to our elderly friends and relatives. There are different types of physical abuses that happen to elderly people that occur in different circumstances. The ways in which families may deal with these abuses and the prosecution of such abuses are also discussed. In the media we often hear about physical abuses and neglect happening in assisted living and care facilities. Therese and Paul explore options for living situations, as well as what we, as families and loved ones, can do to make the best decision possible for our elderly relatives. We, as a society, need to find ways to take control of the situation, bring attention to the problem, and find ways to mitigate and slow the problem of elder abuse. We can all get involved now in our own communities.
