What if you visit an elderly member and see signs of abuse?

Presbyterians Against Domestic Violence Network (PADVN) provides this resource for pastors. The indicators of elder abuse are similar to those for spousal/partner abuse and child abuse. In addition to physical, sexual, emotional or psychological and financial abuse, there is one other aspect of elder abuse. Elder abuse may also involve neglect — passive, active or self-neglect.
