(Elder Abuse)…It is a very real problem.
June is Elder and Dependent Adult Abuse Awareness Month. As the number of older adults continues to grow, there are more adults who become vulnerable to financial abuse, physical abuse, or neglect. It is up to us to keep a watchful eye on neighbors and community members. Call Adult Protective Services at 760-482-7878, day or night, if you suspect that an older or dependent adult needs help.
