In recognition of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day today (June 15), B.C. notaries are bringing attention to the often hidden but prevalent problem of older people being physically, emotionally or financially abused at the hands of strangers, acquaintances and even family members.
While this year's theme focuses specifically on financial abuse, the sad reality is that the elderly face a broad array of exploitation that includes physical, medical, emotional, psychological and sexual abuse. "We have over recent years been studying and researching elder abuse within the closed doors of one's home. The World Health Organization has estimated that the prevalence rate of elder abuse in high-or middle-income countries ranges from 2% to 14% of people usually defined as 'over the age of 60 or 65 years". "If a family member is looking to take advantage of an older person, that can be hard to spot".

"If you look into statistics of abuse, a lot of the time it's the intricate dynamics of the family unit that aren't working, so we at Family Services and the Red Deer Co-ordinated Community Response recognize that parents and families and seniors need resources", she said. "Are we showing them the proper respect?"
