How should we respond to suspected cases of elder abuse when caring for patients?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Responding to cases of elder abuse depends on the the urgency of the case.If the danger is not that immediate but you suspect maybe the assault occurred or in the process it is advisable please if you inform somebody relevant.One can reach the Adult protective Service in case of urgency in the area the elder is living.If you happened to be the victim of the abuse,neglect,exploitation then I believe you do not have to worry cause you are not alone.Lot of people are ready to help and care.It is wise you inform your doctor,family,friend or maybe anybody you trust or calling the Elder Care Locator line urgently i bet is the best move sometimes.The Elder-care locator is functional throughout the weekdays between 9 am to pm according to Eastern time.










Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
