Understanding Elder Abuse

Elder abuse encompasses various forms of mistreatment, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial exploitation, and neglect. It specifically affects individuals aged 65 and above, and examples range from nursing home staff exhibiting aggressive behavior towards residents to neglecting their essential needs, such as proper nutrition and medical care.

The Elder Abuse Act: Seeking Civil Protection

To combat elder abuse, California has enacted the Elder Abuse and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act. This legislation empowers individuals to pursue civil actions against those responsible for elder abuse and neglect, with a particular focus on protecting nursing home residents and dependent adults. The Act extends its protection to individuals between the ages of 18 and 64 who have physical or mental limitations.
