Podcast: Impacts of Elder Neglect and Abuse - 2016 Conf
2016 Conference General Session: National Trends in Aging: Impacts of Elder Neglect and Abuse for our Most Vulnerable Populations---With current medical advances and the adoption of healthier lifestyles, people are living longer. Older Americans now comprise the fastest growing segment of the United States population. By the year 2020, this group will increase by 5.5%, and by 2050 they are projected to account for 25% of the population. Their inevitable functional decline will leave older Americans increasingly dependent on others for support and hence at risks ranging from physical, sexual, emotional, or financial abuse; and exploitation or neglect by individuals within the older person's social circle -- family, friends, and even professional advisors and care providers. Dr. Fulmer will discuss how care management can identify, report, and work effectively in these challenging situations. Dr. Fulmer is nationally and internationally recognized as a leading expert in geriatrics and is best known for her research on the topic of elder abuse and neglect.
