  1. That’s all well and fine, but until they stop allowing caregivers with medical POAs to MURDER their elders through withdrawl of medical care, often against their will, this is all a moot point. The fact that there is a ‘loophole” that allows predators to murder and rob their elders, often their own parents and grandparents, is an absolutely abhorrent disgrace to our country….and it is epidemic.

  2. Approximately 1 in 10 Americans aged 60+ have experienced some form of elder abuse. Some estimates range as high as 5 million elders who are abused each year. One study estimated that only 1 in 14 cases of abuse are reported to authorities.
