Elder abuse can come in many forms: neglect, improper dispensing of medications, improper use of restraints or power, causation of emotional distress, or failure to provide care in a timely manner. The signs of elder abuse can be obvious or subtle and some find the idea of broaching the topic of possible abuse overwhelming, understandably so. However, if one has even the slightest misgiving about a situation, it is strongly encouraged that further information is gathered.
