This book educates the reader to recognize elder abuse in its early stages before the damage is irreparable. John E.

Combined with reliable statistics, the result is chilling evidence that elder abuse exists in every facet of our senior citizens' lives. The stories shared in this book encompass every level of contact, including doctors, lawyers, financial advisors, family members, social workers, and the frontline workers at both retirement homes and long-term care centres.The book is an easy read for such a difficult subject. It encourages us to have the conversation respectfully and lovingly to ensure that our loved ones know they have a right to live free of abuse. We all have a role to play in the resolution.
