Door County dealing with elder abuse

With Door County having an older demographic that is increasingly aging, local agencies are looking to help curb concerns of elder abuse.   Help of Door County Executive Director Milly Gonzales says that although older people in Door County are more active and independent, the statistics show that Door County is experiencing an increase in elder abuse.  She shares a few of the signs of potential elder abuse.

 

 

Gonzales adds that it is even more important than ever to check on the wellbeing of the elderly.  Elder abuse can come in many forms, including emotional, neglect, and financial abuse.  Monday, June 15, is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
