Know the Signs – Take Action
As we head into February and Valentine’s Day, we would like to encourage everyone with an elderly loved one to take a few minutes out of your day to focus on that person. As we age, we can become more vulnerable to those who would, for whatever reason, choose to do us harm. Whether it’s an aging parent or grandparent, a member of your extended family, a friend, neighbor, or coworker, think about that individual as you read through the following list. If anything jumps out at you and you have reason to believe that the older individual may be experiencing abuse, follow the information at the bottom of the page and seek help. Remember, you may be the only one who notices and speaks up.
