Elder abuse among our elderly has sadly been a dirty little secret, but things may be changing as more cases are brought to the surface. Many of the symptoms listed below can occur as a result of abuse, but keep in mind that they can also be due to disease conditions or medications.
For family, recognizing any of these symptoms outlined by the American Psychological Association, should prompt further investigation to determine and remedy the cause.
Bruises or grip marks around the arms or neck
Uncommunicative and unresponsive
Unexplained vaginal or anal bleeding
Financial Abuse or Exploitation
Life circumstances don’t match with size of estate
Sunken eyes or loss of weight
You can read the full story on how caregivers can guard against elder abuse in Guarding Against Elder Abuse -- Keep a Watchful Eye in the Home, a feature article in the August 2008 edition of Caregiver’s Home Companion.
