Unfortunately, the research shows that for every case reported five go unreported, says the social services manager for Elder Protective Services in Las Vegas in the Review-Journal article.

The statistics cited in the Review-Journal article are not unique to the State of Nevada. In cities and towns around the country, there are similar numbers of reported elder abuse cases. To find out how to prevent elder abuse or what to do if you believe you are or have been a victim, contact an elder law attorney to discuss what steps you should take to get the assistance and care you need.
