Imagine someone you love, who has dedicated their life to providing you with guidance and care, being subjected to personal injury, elder abuse and neglect simply because they're elderly.

Elder abuse is a sad and real issue that affects many older adults, often in silence and often by members of their own family. However, to understand elder abuse it's imperative understand what abuse itself is.

What Is Abuse?


According to Cornell's Wex legal dictionary and encyclopedia Abuse is an action that intentionally inflicts harm/ injury to another (i.e. physical, psychological, mental or financial).



According to data from the National Institute on Aging (NIH): 1 in 10 seniors over the age of 60 experience abuse, neglect, or financial exploitation

Elder Abuse Is A Felony in Texas

Although Texans are legally obligated to report any known or suspected instances of elder abuse there are still thousands of elder abuse victims who's voices are left unheard due to either declining cognitive abilities or fear of retribution. Elder neglect is also a form of elder abuse and failing to report suspected abuse can result in a misdemeanor/ felony depending on the severity of the abuse. In the State of Texas, elder abuse is in fact considered a felony.
