One in 10 older Americans experience abuse each year.
This number increases to 1 in 2 when the person has dementia.
Elder abuse occurs in both homes and facilities and occurs in many forms including financial, sexual, physical and psychological abuse as well as neglect
Even though these statistics are frightening it helps us to understand that the problem is more prevalent than we think, and urges us to get educated about the issue.

Many elderly adults are abused in their own homes, in relatives’ homes, and even in facilities responsible for their care. If you suspect that an elderly person is at risk from a neglectful or overwhelmed caregiver, or being preyed upon financially, it’s important to speak up. Join us as we discuss the warning signs of elder abuse, the risk factors, and how you can prevent and report the problem.
Within the system of so-called Bills to prevent the issue of abuse homelessness and the mistreatment of elderly and disabled people within the United States there seems to be a very high level of conspiracy aimed towards seniors from the time they are dianosyed with illness to extreme measures of medication given to them as a result of these alleged illiness causing many to die. The Death count also can be seen within the reason reports relating to our returning military men and the cause of the lack of allowed treatment whereby they are facing the very same conspiracy to offer up scams to relieve them the right to benefits and healthcare, he robbery also includes how nursing homes many are involved as well in allowing non-familymembers to take over family members homes cars and more their lives with little recourse for the families to fight back with this week we will talk about the issue of Elder Disabled and Veteran Abuse within a system that continously fails us with the intent to take away our rights to having retirement money and the things that we were told would be there upon retirement.
Today is Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Obama announced he was making that official. I can only imagine the media spins that are being constructed right now to cement in the public mind that it is only family and friends who abuse, neglect and exploit the elderly.
We know better. We know family and friends account for only 4-5 % of the abuse of the elderly. The remainder is at the hands of professionals who game the system in order to loot the estate. But mainstream media won't even mention that!
Tonights show will highlight many of the cases of professional predators operating within corrupt probate courts across the country that have stolen billions from the elderly while holding them prisoner in what usually turns out to be a sub-standard facility. Forced medication, anyone?
Please feel free to call in with your comments or questions.
In honor of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day which takes place on June 15, Peter Gwaltney of the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation joins the show. Gwaltney talks about how the Foundation enables banks a way to earn CRA credit through the sponsorship of their program in senior housing facilities, HUD communities and Veterans homes in the form of community development loans, CRA-qualified investments and grants.

OPEN TOPIC or "open mike" night. Call in! Pick any issues, topics or subjects you'd like to discuss. Wearing a Blue Ribbon is the symbol of Child Abuse Awareness! Millions of abuse victims (men and women) hide the story of their experience well into adulthood. A huge number continue to suffer from pain, anger, fear, shame and embarrassment for decades. Most will agree their traumas have resulted in an inability to trust, make good decisions and have healthy relationships. But giving up the secret is often how recovery begins, one survivor talking to another. Join Bill Murray and his co-hosts, panelists and guests, many of them abuse survivors, others supporters and friends, for an informed discussion of the many important issues that surround child abuse. Anonymous calls and chat room participation are encouraged. ~~ Please see our web site at: www.NAASCA.org

Tonight's special guest is Polly Moore from Atlanta, Georgia, the Executive Administrative Assistant of Angela Williams, Founder of VOICE Today, a non-profit organization whose mission is to break the cycle and silence of child sexual abuse through awareness, prevention, and healing programs. She began volunteering with VOICE Today on July 17, 2012, the day after she broke her silence. She'd found her voice at VOICE Today’s support group the night before. Polly grew up with six siblings in Mobile, Alabama, but was only 8 years old when her father died of lung cancer. Soon two neighborhood boys began to molest her, friends of her older twin brothers. A couple of years later she was assaulted by another neighbor and later by her older brother. She was able to break away from the abuse at the age of twelve, but was by then deep in the darkness of isolation. Polly is now a mother and grandmother, and has lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years. She is contemplating returning to finish her final year at Western Carolina University where she majored in Accounting, and has become a devoted advocate for adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. Polly says she will forever continue to help fellow adult survivors find their voice and welcome their healing through the working of Angela Williams and VOICE Today.

Tonight's special guest is Dr Patrick Gannon, a clinical psychologist in private practice in San Francisco. He has worked extensively with high risk children and adults who have been abused over the last thirty five years and lectures widely on a range of mental health issues. Dr Gannon says, "When I started working with child and adult survivors, I identified with many of their feelings although never to the extent that I felt traumatized by what I experienced in childhood. In a sense, I experienced just enough of the emotional abuse to want to do something about it." Based on his experiences in child abuse prevention, he wrote the book "Soul Survivors: A New Beginning For Adults Abused As Children" in 1989. In 1993, he became the Clinical Director of the Norma J. Morris Center for Healing From Child Abuse in San Francisco, where he was one of the founders of the Adult Survivors of Child Abuse self-help program (www.ASCAsupport.org). The 21 steps of recovery outlined in "Soul Survivors" provided the theoretical basis for the ASCA program of recovery. Dr Gannon co-authored the ASCA basic manual and guidebook, "Survivor to Thriver," which describes process of recommended tasks and issues that most adult survivors face during their recovery from child abuse. The second edition of "Soul Survivors" was published as an ebook only two months ago. The ebook contains significant revisions, additions, updated research as well as integrates the ASCA program into the three stage, 21 step program. The Morris Center is sharing in the profits from "Soul Survivors" set at a very low ebook price of $5.99 (Smashwords.com and Amazon.com) to make it affordable for survivors around the world.
