SORT BY Relevancy
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.
This radio segment will focus on our aging population, the impact this has on our society, the issue of ageism, and how community-based programs can work together to prevent and respond to abuse and neglect in later life.
Listeners will hear from experts on this topic from the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life and the University of California Irvine Center of Excellence on Elder Abuse & Neglect, with support being provided by the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.

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.
