Elder Care Providers Issue Warning (USA)

Providers of elder care are warning that cuts in protection programs for the elderly are being proposed at a time when the state is seeing a “quiet pandemic” of abuse cases.
“The amount of cases continues to increase in our area,” said Edward Flynn, executive director of South Shore Elder Services in Braintree.
Flynn’s comments echo concerns that were aired Wednesday during a State House forum. Legislators heard from state officials and home care providers who projected that nearly 20,000 cases of elder abuse will be reported in Massachusetts by year’s end.
Al Norman, executive director of Mass Home Care, a consortium of elder care organizations, said many cases go unreported because they involve family and the elderly fear being taken out of their homes.
