Defining and measuring elder abuse

NICE is look for elder seniors to participate in an Elder Abuse study. They want to come up with paramaters and solutions. I think, just like domestic assault, developmental disabilities, social or emotional disabilities, there is no solution if you still have the problem in your later years. There should be a spectrum of care. Why shouldn't abuse senior women not go to a shelter and get support there. In the case of assault, why shouldn't there be arrests? Put more money into funding for specialists to prevent these issues in old age.
