Have you ever witnessed someone taking blatant advantage of a senior citizen? Did you know there are places to call if you have suspicions (or better yet, evidence) of elder abuse? The above link directs you to State Elder Abuse Helplines and Hotlines
If you suspect elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation, call your state’s elder abuse hotline or reporting number. Help is available. You’ll find a map of each state at this site.
Information and referral is also available from the national Eldercare Locator, a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging. Call toll-free 1-800-677-1116. This number is available from Monday through Friday 9 AM-8 PM (except U.S. federal holidays).
