"Raise awareness of the silent epidemic of elder abuse."
We are undertaking a survey of the literature on abuse, treatment, neglect, or exploitation of those unable to care for themselves for any reason, such as age, minority, and physical or mental disability. This will include abuse by all types of perpetrators, including family, trustees, guardians, and those holding powers of attorney. It will include those receiving social security benefits. We will compile recommendations which have been made to reduce or eliminate abuse.
Feel free to visit us and find out more at protectorfoundation.org
