Elder Abuse: Abuse a Silent Footprint (SPAIN)

Spain: Abuse, a Silent Footprint
(November 9, 2008)
(Article in Spanish)

Approximately 5% of older persons in Spain suffer from some type of abuse, most of which is not reported. When older people do not carry physical marks on them, people tend to believe they are well. However, many are suffering from negligence in their own homes. The abuse of older persons affects all types of people in different socio-economic levels. Experts believe that the best solution to this problem is to inform the public, as well as professionals in the medical field, how to detect this silent phenomenon that is affecting older persons.
