Community Opens an Elder Abuse Shelter to Protect Victims of Elder Abuse

Seniors now have a place to turn for advice and shelter when tragedy strikes. A community has now opened a senior abuse shelter and abuse hotline for seniors who need assistance. The community recently reflected that teenagers, women, and children have hotlines but not seniors. In response, a local community organization has provided an initial $100,000 budget to fund services after a saddening incident of elder abuse and neglect happened in the community. A local woman was found dead in her home after suffering from profound malnutrition after her daughter stopped feeding the elderly woman.
