Eloise Sotelo did a great job in informing people at that meeting about financial abuse. Since the focus was financial abuse of the elderly, she did not talk about the other abuses of elderly persons in our county, such as neglect, constraint or deprivation, over- or under-medication, abduction, assault/battery, isolation, abandonment, and psychological abuse. One could say that financial abuse is the tip of the iceberg, a big tip, but so often there is more than one kind of abuse going on.

Where can we find more information on the other abuses that eldery persons run into? Where do you seek help?
