Description: Elder abuse often goes unnoticed. The most common types of elder abuse include financial and physical abuse, in addition to negligence. Sadly, more often than not, family and friends perpetrate this abuse. This documentary looks at the challenges of protecting vulnerable elders. Physical abuse is what often makes the headlines, but neglect and financial issues can easily and quietly cross the line into exploitation and abuse if warning signs are ignored. Elder Victims: Abused, Exploited, Alone is produced with MN S.A.F.E. Elders Initiative.
