The Growing Issue of Elderly Abuse

  1. 1. THE GROWING ISSUE OF ELDERLY ABUSE By Dave Katra
  2. 2. Introduction  A California Licensed Fiduciary with a certificate in trust management, Dave Katra serves as the co- operator of Trusted Solutions Los Gatos in partnership with his wife Sue, who is a Certified Geriatric Care Manager (CGCM). Together, Dave Katra and Sue Katra are committed to ensuring that elderly people receive the highest level of care and avoid the risks associated with the conservatorship system. According to the National Institute of Justice, elder abuse is a growing issue for aging adults under the care of conservators, with statistics showing that one in 10 seniors experience elder abuse every year.
  3. 3. Elderly Abuse  While Adult Protective Services agencies around the nation state that the number of reported elder abuse cases has increased, it’s still estimated that just one in 14 instances of elder abuse are reported to authorities. Recent U.S. Census studies also indicate that by 2050, 20 percent of the American population will be older than 65, which is twice as many seniors as in 2012. An article in Forbes Magazine explains that the prevalence of elder abuse is largely due to lack of caregiver training. In 2012, an AARP study found that almost half of all family caregivers conduct medical or nursing care even though most have received little or none of the training necessary to perform these tasks.
