Elder Abuse in California
Elder abuse can be inflicted upon vulnerable older citizens by family members, friends, caregivers, and others known to the victim. The elderly are especially susceptible to various kinds of abuse due to physical or mental incapacities, loneliness, fear of reprisals, inability to communicate, illness, and a trusting nature. These elderly victims may have more property, assets, or cash than those who prey upon them, making them a target for such unethical predators. Those who abuse elders may seek to steal important financial information or property through various means. They may also abuse elders with physical injuries, sexual abuse, threats, intimidation, humiliation, verbal attacks, or isolation. Neglect by caregivers, whether in nursing homes or elsewhere, consists of failing to provide for the basic needs of the elder person, such as food, shelter, medications, personal hygiene, and more.
