More than 13% of the U.S. population is over the age of 65. This includes veterans, retired teachers, retired law enforcement, retired factory workers, and more importantly our parents and grand parents. The elderly are entitled to our respect and gratitude for the sacrifices they made to make this country great.
Unfortunately, the elderly are more susceptible to abuse and neglect. Some studies estimate that more than 10% of seniors have experienced some form of abuse. The probability of abuse and neglect dramatically increases if the senior is one of the 14 million who are disabled or institutionalized. Some studies show over 44% nursing home residents have reported being abused and over 95% have said they have been neglected or seen another resident neglected.
