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.

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.
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.

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.

Sometimes the memories are too much to hold inside. Sometimes the pain just gets too big. Medicating our pain as survivors of child sexual abuse is one way to survive.
But as long as we are addicted, we will never thrive. Addiction kills relationships, careers, healing and spiritual growth. Addiction takes the life out of us and returns the destruction of all we hold dear in exchange for killing the pain.
David Pittman, director of Together We Heal, knows both the pain of abuse AND the pain of addiction. And now he knows the joy of helping others get free from both. Join David and Misa as they bring hope for healing from addiction and child abuse.
