Reach out. Listen. Show you care.

In the era of COVID 19, many of us are feeling socially isolated. And among those of us who are older, some of us may be vulnerable to abuse, especially now.  Abuse can be financial, emotional, psychological, physical, or sexual. Abuse can also come in the form of neglect — when somebody fails to provide the necessities of life, such as food, clothing, safe shelter, medical attention, or personal care. Neglect can be intentional or unintentional.

It is possible we know someone experiencing abuse. Abuse thrives in secrecy, in isolation, and in silence. Abuse of older adults is more common than many of us realize. It often occurs within a relationship where there is an expectation of trust.
