Many counties within Pennsylvania are now holding seminars for their area's elderly population. These seminars often focus on how to spot the different types of elder abuse, such as financial, physical, and emotional. These seminars are especially important since Pennsylvania has one of highest populations of elderly residents in the country.
Montgomery County has also conducted seminars on elder abuse, such as "Elder Abuse: How To Spot It and How To Stop It". The panel who ran the seminar talked about how self-neglect, caregiver neglect, and financial exploitation are the three most common forms of elder abuse. The panel also urged its participants to learn how to spot elder abuse and report it when we see it. To learn more about Montgomery County's elder abuse seminar, please click the link here.
