An Appeal for Concerted Effort to Prevent Elder Abuse (USA)

Justice for older and vulnerable adults can't wait

The Republican Eagle
January 01, 2009

In the past few weeks, allegations of nursing home residents' abuse have surfaced in two Minnesota communities. As a result, some families and seniors have begun to question their trust in nursing home care.

The allegations as described in the complaints are appalling, yet they serve as a reminder about the responsibility we all must take in caring for our spouses, parents and grandparents.
Let's be clear: even one incident of elder abuse in any setting is one incident too many.

Compassion requires us to protect the aging and vulnerable. While the Vulnerable Adult Justice Project has a diverse membership, we share one common goal: to protect those who cannot protect themselves. We urge others to join us in our campaign to end elder abuse at all levels and settings.
