The National Council on Aging (NEA) states that around one out of every ten Americans over 60 have experienced some form of elder abuse and that as many as five million elderly Americans are abused each year. However, this number is likely far underreported, as studies indicate that most incidents of elder abuse are not reported to authorities.
