The article I chose for this post was the “ Prevalence and Correlates of Emotional, Physical, Sexual and Financial Bauer and potential neglect in the United States , the reason why this article was chosen was because it was interesting, and it takes all forms of abuse and discusses them and then attaches them to treatment of the elderly. “ Approximately 1000000 Us Adults has experienced abuse since reaching age 60 years with 2% reporting physicals abuse and 1.1 verbal abuse” ( Aclema).
The author of this article used the regression technique to not only help distinguish the about of adults being abused but to also show the rise as the years go on. The older the individual gets the more abuse they might experience. “Data showed that abuse of the elderly is prevalent addressing low social support with preventive intervention could have significant public health implications.
A conclusion that was drawn from this article was that the elderly are being mistreated and that is completely wrong, the elderly are the people that we should be learning from not treated them as if they are not important at all. The elderly should be respected not taken advantage of, and something that this areticle really highlighted was the fact that these individuals are not being treated the way that they deserve.
