Safeguarding Our Seniors

Safeguarding Our Seniors is a video prepared by the Texas Young Lawyers Association designed to heighten awareness of the signs and symptoms of elder abuse. Watch the video and start looking out for seniors in your community today!

Summary

As the senior population – persons 65 years or older – continues to increase, so too do the chances for seniors to become victims of abuse and/or self-neglect. According to some reports, between 1 and 2 million Americans 65 or older have been the victims of some form of abuse. And even these estimates may be low. Some experts believe that only one in 14 cases of abuse actually gets reported.

“Safeguarding Our Seniors” can be made available in DVD format for a showing in your community. Contact the Texas Young Lawyers Association at (512) 427-1529 or tyla@texasbar.com for details.
