If you were to ask a typical boomer what their ideal day would be, you would likely get back to your typical day, which is busy, stressful, and filled with a variety of tasks. However, there is a small number of boomers that are more than just the typical norm, and these are the boomers that are concerned with elder abuse.
Elder abuse is a form of abuse perpetuated at the expense of elderly people. In a nutshell, it’s the abuse of senior citizens by their caretakers, typically a parent or relative. Some elder abuse happens in the home, while others may occur outside its confines. Boomers are often concerned with elder abuse because of the rise in the number of elderly people who are being abused.
According to the National Center for Abuse Statistics, over 15 million adults aged 65 and older were victims of elder abuse in 2017. This is up from about 12 million people in 2015. That means that for every one that reports abuse in the home, there are 9.6 more in the community.
The abuse that Boomers and elders both experience and the types of abuse are so different that it’s hard to compare the two.
What I found interesting is that the types of abuse that more people in the community are experiencing are those that are related to mental illness. If you’re a person with mental illness, you are more likely to be the target of elder abuse. It is also hard to know exactly who is being abused because the people who are doing the abusing might not be aware that they are. The best way to try and figure out who is being abused is to keep a log and keep looking at it.
If you look at the log and you don’t see any signs of mental illness in the abuse yet, it just means that the abuse is happening less often for people with mental illness. This is because mental illness is often confused with an unhealthy lifestyle. If you are in your twenties and you are having mental illness, it is most likely that you are not the only one. If you have mental illness, there are many people with mental illness who are also in your twenties.
Older people with a history of mental illness are more likely to be abused by a family member or an older adult that has mental illness. Because mental illness is usually an ongoing illness, in older people, the abuse happens at a much younger age. The older you get, the more your mental illness becomes confused with an unhealthy lifestyle. If you are an older adult, it’s likely that you will have a mental illness.
In old age, the rate of abuse is much higher. Because mental illness in older people is often confused with unhealthy lifestyle choices, an older adult is more likely to have been abused in their life. It’s only later in life that the mental illness becomes clear.
The best way to deal with this is to be more aware of your health and look for ways to cope with it.
Well, boomers can make some incredible choices about how they live their lives, but I think they should be aware of the fact that they are likely to be abused in some way. And I think that they should look for ways to cope with the abuse in healthy ways.
