Distraught Elderly Man:  Elder abuse, neglect, fraud Arkansas resources. 

Arkansas Resources

Aging is a natural process, abuse is not. In spite of the headway that has been made in explaining how and why elder abuse occurs, it still remains a poorly understood problem in our state.  No simple definition can encompass its many aspects.  Elder mistreatment may be an act of commission (abuse) or omission (neglect). It may be an intentional act, that is, a conscious attempt to inflict suffering, or it may be unintentional because of inadequate knowledge, infirmity, or laziness on the part of the person responsible.  Now is the time to stop it…Stop ignoring the abuse and neglect….You can make a difference! ...Arkansas Adult Protective Services
