Each year hundreds of thousands of older Americans are abused, neglected, and exploited. Elders lose an estimated $2.6 billion or more annually due to elder financial abuse and exploitation, funds that could have been used to pay for basic needs such as housing, food, and medical care. In addition, elder abuse is estimated to cost Americans $60 to $90 billion annually in health care, social services, and investigative and legal costs. No one is immune to abuse, neglect and exploitation. It occurs in every demographic group and can happen to anyone; a family member, neighbor, and even you. However, on June 15, 2011, "World Elder Abuse Awareness Day", the entire world will focus on this crime which often goes undiscovered and unreported, and draw attention to the mistreatment of the elderly.
