Elder abuse appears in many forms: physical, neglectful, sexual, emotional, and financial. Some are easily recognizable. Others are not. Regardless of the form, elder abuse is widespread, often hard to detect, and can be deadly. The good news is there are many community and government resources that address elder abuse. The bad news is that these resources do not come with a guarantee. Karen K. Greenberg, along with co-author Daniel Pollack, recently published an abstract on ResearchGate that explores the societal ill and delves into the complications that arise when investigating allegations of elder abuse.
