ABA Senior Lawyers Division | Experience | 2015 | Summer 2015: Elder Abuse | By Bernard A. Krooks, Esq., & Elizabeth Valentin Esq., Littman Krooks LLP

With the aging of the baby boomers and increased life expectancies, the number of seniors in this country will grow dramatically within the next few years. With that growth will also come a rise in elder abuse due to the inevitable complex of needs and problems associated with the increase of this vulnerable population. Elder abuse is embedded in the common fragilities of many older adults. The physical, cognitive, and emotional changes that come with aging can increase an older person’s vulnerability to abuse.
