ELDER ABUSE & NEGLECT DISCUSSION
May 5 @ 8:00 am - May 15 @ 5:00 pm
What is elder abuse and neglect?
Elder abuse includes physical, emotional, or sexual harm inflicted upon an older adult, their financial exploitation, or neglect of their welfare by people who are directly responsible for their care. In the U.S. alone, more than half a million reports of elder abuse reach authorities every year, and millions more cases go unreported.
As older adults become more physically frail, they’re less able to take care of themselves, stand up to bullying, or fight back if attacked. Mental or physical ailments can make them more trying companions for those who live with them. And they may not see or hear as well or think as clearly as they used to, leaving openings for unscrupulous people to take advantage of them.
Join us for this upcoming RUSS HOBBS MINISTRIES KOINONIA DISCUSSION on Sunday May 15th at 6PM at the Mount Hope United Christian Church, 206 Cider Press Rd. Manheim, PA
