There's no excuse for elder abuse

"I am proud that my administration stands united against elder abuse and is working tirelessly to ensure seniors are protected and supported across the commonwealth".

Dozens of Lethbridge seniors joined in an "awareness walk" Thursday, as southern Albertans recognized elder abuse issues across the nation. The report is part of Help Age's campaign to "StopAgeism" and make people aware of their treatment of elders.

She said the kind of elder abuse that happens includes physical and mental abuse.

In recognition of Elder Abuse Awareness Day, Adult Protective Services worked to bring attention to the issue in Mahoning County.

"Sir Peter is an inspirational role model to older New Zealanders and many people feel they know him through his sporting success, his books and his life's work".

"We also see passive neglect where people are taking care of seniors and not seeing the medical as well as nutritional needs that they have", she said.

Mitchell says senior abuse can take all forms, including physical and emotional, but that more than 60 percent of cases his office sees are people ripping off the elderly. "Most people react really well if you approach them in a non-confrontational way and say 'I'm really anxious about you, I saw, ' That way that person is engaged in their own support system".

Workman said it's crucial seniors not let their concerns be unheard and urged them to lay out how they wanted their affairs to be handled through power of attorney.

"Those with cognitive impairments such as severe dementia and Alzheimer's are the most vulnerable to financial abuse", said Dr Noran Mohd Hairi, principal researcher of Peace.

"Seniors lose money, security and dignity, and their quality of life suffers when offenders-whether they're friends, family, caregivers or complete strangers -leave their mark".
