There are nearly 6 million cases of elder abuse every year in the United States—one every five seconds! Virginia alone recently suffered more than 147,000 cases of elder abuse in a single year. Unfortunately, many go unreported.
Elder abuse can take a variety of forms, including physical, emotional, financial and sexual mistreatment. Neglect and abandonment of a senior in need also constitutes elder abuse. Sadder still, such abuse is inflicted not just by strangers and/or institutions, but by family members as well.
