Another Important May Message: Elder Abuse Prevention Month
 
Piggybacking Older Americans Month, May is also the month-long observance of elder abuse prevention. Get involved with protecting the elderly by downloading a free Adult Abuse Prevention Kit, available in English and Spanish, at www.EveryonesBusiness.org

Spot the signs! Abusive or neglectful caregivers may show anger or indifference toward elders by:
·
       Physically or emotionally abusing them
·
       Preventing them from speaking to or seeing visitors
·
       Taking advantage of their financial resources

Texas law requires anyone suspecting that an elderly person or adult with disabilities is being abused, neglected, or exploited to report it immediately to the Texas Abuse Hotline at 1-800-252-5400 or online at www.TxAbuseHotline.org http://www.TxAbuseHotline.org
