Dana Pavlock on Elder Abuse (Aired on 5-27-17 & 5-28-17)

The sixth annual World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, celebrated on June 16, 2017, is discussed on RadioRotary by Susan Davidson of Friends of Seniors and Dana Pavlock of Evercare. Elder abuse can be psychological, financial, sexual, physical, or simply neglectful. It is more of an issue today than in the past because people are living longer, but families no longer have several generations living in the same location. Isolated elders, many suffering from mild to serious dementia, can be easy prey for caregivers of various kinds. Friends of Seniors does not deal directly with elder abuse, but provides medical transportation, grocery shopping, caregiver respite, and similar services through trustworthy volunteers. Evercare is a certified home health care agency that also offers a managed long-term care plan through Medicaid as well as an adult social day program. T
