Many seniors suffer from abuse and neglect, sometimes from caregivers or family members. Abuse can take the form physical, sexual, emotional, financial, or spiritual abuse.
The abuser can be a spouse, partner, relative, a friend or neighbor, a volunteer worker, a paid worker, practitioner, solicitor, or any other individual with the evil intent to deprive a vulnerable person of their resources, or merely to bully them into submission, especially in the case of those with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
As the elderly become more physically frail, they’re less able to stand up to bullying and or fight back if attacked. They may not see or hear as well or think as clearly as they used to, leaving openings for unscrupulous and cruel people to take advantage of them. And sometimes the elderly can’t explain what is happening to them – often on a regular basis!
We know that neglect and self-neglect are also forms of abuse. Self-neglect happens when a senior lives in a way that puts his or her own health, safety, or well-being at risk.
The health consequences of elder abuse can be serious. Elder abuse can destroy an elderly person’s quality of life in the following ways:
- Declining functional abilities
- Increased dependency
- An increased sense of helplessness
- Increased stress
- Worsening psychological decline
- Premature mortality and morbidity
- Depression and dementia
- Bed sores
