Elder Abuse Protection
Living in long-term care facilities is rewarding but also has its many challenges. One of the darker difficulties that many seniors face in long-term care is elder abuse. According to the National Council of Aging, about five million senior Americans face elder abuse yearly! That is a scary thought but thankfully, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that protective factors like community and relationship levels can reduce the risk of perpetuating abuse or neglect. One great protective factor is having an attorney. Attorneys who specialize in elder law can be your representatives in legal matters. They defend your rights. Everyone needs professional help from time to time, especially our seniors. Luckily some people dedicate their lives to becoming experts in fields like elder law. Consider hiring an attorney to protect your assets, rights and loved ones.
OurSeniors.org is on a mission to reach out to isolated seniors in the local community. Help bring joy to their lives by donating or volunteering to visit a facility. A little mindfulness can go a long way. We hope you enjoy this holiday season from our team at OurSeniors.org
