ELDER ABUSE

Another matter I faced when I was a volunteer attorney this week at the Nassau County Bar Association Senior Clinic was a problem of elder abuse. There are many forms of Elder Abuse: physical, emotional, financial, etc. Click on the title above: it will lead you to The National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), directed by the U.S. Administration on Aging, which is committed to helping national, state, and local partners in the field be fully prepared to ensure that older Americans will live with dignity, integrity, independence, and without abuse, neglect, and exploitation. The NCEA is a resource for policy makers, social service and health care practitioners, the justice system, researchers, advocates, and families.
