Elder abuse takes many forms and includes physical abuse and neglect as well as financial exploitation. Certain types of abuse are directed not only against seniors but also other vulnerable populations. Among the most common types of elder abuse are:
- Nursing home abuse and neglect: When nursing home administrators and staff members fail to provide for their residents’ safety and well-being, they can suffer serious and potentially fatal injuries such as falls and pressure sores.
- Embezzlement and other financial abuse: All too often, when seniors allow family members and so-called friends to handle their financial affairs, those people end up taking money and property for their own benefit.
- Fraudulent sales and business practices: Unscrupulous companies and their salespeople often target older people for the fraudulent sale of annuities, insurance policies, mortgages, home equity loans and other potentially abusive financial products.
