• Between one to two million vulnerable adults are abused or neglected in our country every year.
• For every report of abuse of an older adult or an adult with a disability five reports are not made. Many people are living out their golden years in fear.
• While residents of long-term care facilities (research shows up to 36%) may be victims of abuse or neglect, most older adults live in their own homes and, therefore, most elder abuse occurs in the community, by people known to the vulnerable adult. The vast majority is perpetrated by family members.
