Elder Abuse: Often a Hidden Problem (KY. USA)

Elder abuse often hidden but a Shocking societal problem
Merlene Davis - Herald-Leader columnist

Three reported cases of elder abuse have come to light in recent weeks, in which a grandchild allegedly was involved in severely beating, poisoning or killing a grandparent with whom he or she was living.

..."we often see this as a familial problem," he continued. "A live-in adult child or grandchild exploiting or abusing an elderly parent or grandparent. It's a hidden problem."

Call 1-800-752-6200 to report abuse anonymously, or call your local police or sheriff's department if the danger is immediate. Legally, you are required to do that.
