K-State Research and Extension’s publication, Elder Abuse and Neglect: What You Should Know, describes the six common categories of elder abuse, warning signs of abuse, who’s at risk for abuse, who’s most likely to be an abuser, and how elder abuse can be prevented. Kansas State University assistant professor and Extension adult development and aging specialist, Erin Yelland, says no one is immune to elder abuse and that it occurs at a much higher rate than is being reported.
