The mistreatment of our nation’s elderly citizens may be more prevalent than previously known. In a recent nationwide study, 11% of elders reported being the victim of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse or neglect in the previous year.
What do we know about who is at the highest risk of mistreatment — and what do we know about the perpetrators?
This webinar was the first in a two-part series on Elder Abuse (you may also view a *recording* of the second Webinar which examined forensic markers).
