Out communities accept us as a full member even whatever age we are at. Still, in our nation, there’s a huge number of elder abuses, and it is a significant challenge for all of us. The abuse to the elders is widespread incidents, and it impacts everyone in the society. Economic resources, civic participation, and public health are away by adult abuse. The abuse is done in many forms, such as emotional, physical and sexual abuse, exploitation financially, and neglect. Only one out of 10 older people report their case; the others go unreported.
