SORT BY Relevancy
Join me as Attorney Al Lanuto, and Marcia Southwick of Boomers Against Elder Abuse talk with us about the other side of elder abuse. While the majority of abuse occurs at the hands of professional predators in the system, there is always the spectre of abuse and financial exploitation at the hands of a family member or friend. When it does, it is the wedge used by professionals to insert themselves into the estate.
We will be talking about how and why this occurs and how to recognize early signs of the exploitation that may be just beginning.
Please be advised that Mr. Lanuto CAN NOT, and WILL NOT give individual legal advice during this episode. We will not be discussing any specific cases.
Calls will be taken in the last half hour.
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.
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.
Join host Tami Neumann as she sits down in conversation with Eric Moldenhauer, senior advocate and owner of ComForcare in Valporasio, Indiana.
They will talk abou what causes Elder Abuse, the Warning SIgns and Who are the people that abuse.

As our loved ones age, many factors such as physical illness, diminishing mental capacity, and dementia can make them vulnerable to neglect, abuse, and exploitation by caregivers, family members, or others. There are a number of Illinois laws and mechanisms in place to prevent and respond to these types of elder abuse. In this podcast with Heather Walser of Lavelle Law, we will explore: (1) the options available to help prevent these types of elder abuse, and (2) the steps you should take if you suspect that a friend or loved one has been the victim of elder abuse.

As the demographics in the U.S. continue to increase in numbers of the elderly, the potential for Elder Abuse increases as well even though crime statistics tend to reflect older adults are unliekly to become victims of violent crime. The highest percentage of crime against persons 65 yuears of age or older is property crime. Thefts against older adults are about 1:5 crimes committed as compared to 1:33 for people aged 12 to 49. Growing old is sometimes hallmarked by greater vulnerability and we do not have reliable statistics on crimes against older adults that go back very far. This show will highlight crimes against the elder.y and include information on defining Elder Abuse, explaining adult protective services, addressing the categories of abuse most commonly found, and relate all of these to Family Abuse as well as Institutional Abuse.

Tonight's special guest is Christy Lynn Abram from Washington, a childhood abuse survivor and author of "Little Miss Somebody," a novel based on her experiences. For many years she endured abuse and abandonment at the hands of her mother, a violent alcoholic. Year after year her abuse increased. She writes, "By the age of 12, I was left alone in an abandoned apartment to fend for myself for weeks." Her mother's actions made her feel worthless, hopeless and isolated in solitude. Christy says, "I became consumed with anger and pain." Although her mother treated her poorly, she followed her mom wherever she went .. to St. Louis, Washington, Florida, Ohio and California. "I was passed around from one relative to another, molested and left to fend for myself." she explains. Her mother "constantly berated me and told me I would never be anybody. At the age of 16, I was emancipated and living alone pregnant with my first child. By the age of 21, I had 3 children and was involved in a abuse marriage." She goes on, "I felt worthless. My sorrow was so deep, I felt like I could never find my way out. I was in and out of mental health treatment centers, each time with a new diagnosis and medication." She struggled with depression for 15 years, survived 3 suicide attempts and eventually continued the cycle of abuse I inherited from her mother. Her road to recovery has taken time. "As a spiritual person, I believe God puts us in the right place so we can discover our purpose through life's lessons," she says. "With all of my being, I believe my experiences have made me a better person." Christy now works as a mental health counselor and mentor to young women who have experiences similar to her own.

Tonight's special guest is Bo Budinsky, a returning NAASCA family member from Texas, who's a child abuse survivor and a tireless child protection and adult survivor advocate. In January 2013 he founded Save One Survivor, after a life of addiction, shattered relationships, abandoned careers and homeless. As a child he'd been repeatedly violated. Bo knew himself as a broken person, deeply troubled and hopelessly addicted. He spent years working on himself, grabbing onto anything available which he thought would be healing. In September, 2010, Bo was selected to appear on Oprah Winfrey's now-famous 200 Male Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse show. Bo shares, "I had an epiphany. It became clear what my struggle all these years had been about. It was about the business of preparing me to be in a place where I could be of service to others with the same plight." He continues, "Only these last few years have I "come out of hiding" so to speak. I have been ashamed of something and running my entire life. I never knew what it was. Now I know. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and it has profoundly affected my life." Bo says "I have one favor to ask. Please speak up, loudly, if you have even an inkling that a child is being sexually abused. Living with the effects is torturous. And if you think it is not very prevalent listen to this: 1 in 3 women AND 1 in 5 men are sexually abused before they are 18. What is at stake is the innocence of a precious child."
