Each year, hundreds of thousands of elderly individuals are abused, neglected, or exploited. In general, elder abuse may refer to any intentional negligent act by a caregiver or any other person which causes harm or a serious risk of harm to a vulnerable elder adult.

Victims of elder abuse are often frail and infirm, and therefore require assistance from others to complete their day-to-day tasks. Because these elderly persons heavily depend on others, they are at risk for being abused by someone whom they’ve entrusted to provide them care.
Abusers of elder adults can be women or men, and they may be family members, friends, or hired caregivers. Elderly individuals may be abused while in a nursing home, or they may be abused while still residing in their own home.
