In the United States, 1 to 2 million reports of elder and vulnerable adult abuse are made; however, the real number of victims is even higher because most cases are not reported, according to Maryland Department of Aging and Long Term Care. In recognition of June as Elder Abuse Awareness Month, below are a list of different types of elder abuse and potential red flags to be aware of to better protect the elder citizens in our community:
"Unfortunately, elder abuse is becoming a growing problem both locally and nationally," says the Honorable Sheila R. Tillerson Adams, Administrative Judge of the Circuit Court for Prince George's County. "If you know someone who may be a victim of elder abuse, I encourage you to contact the Prince George's County Family Justice Center, an initiative of the Circuit County, or advocate and support the elders in your community. Together, we can eliminate this horrific crime."
