One of the greatest tragedies in our country today is the ever-increasing number of reported elder abuse cases. Texas Governor Rick Perry has sought to raise awareness of this dangerous, and even deadly, problem, and the month of May has now been proclaimed as Elder Abuse Prevention Month. Elderly people are at the greatest risk for abuse because they are often unable to stand up for themselves and their desires. If you have placed your elderly loved one in a nursing home or healthcare facility, and you suspect that they are suffering from some type of abuse, you must take action immediately to protect their wellbeing and their vitality.
