Elder Abuse: “a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person,” in other words, doing bad, nasty and cruel things to vulnerable old folk.

And as there are almost 2.5 million reported cases of elder abuse in the US each year, 91% of nursing homes lack adequate staffing to properly care for patients, and 67.3% of the victims are female, this dismal reality should be of serious concern to all PRN.fm listeners. Join Jack & Deborah as they spend a little quality time with Ron Katter, Esq., a successful Plaintiff’s attorney and accomplished litigator, who prosecutes elder abuse cases on behalf of injured seniors and their families. Ron explains common examples of elder abuse, the symptoms and signs to look out for in your own family member, what the law provides, and what proactive and protective actions you can take to prevent it or stop it. Don’t miss it.
