With painfully shocking testimony, American Icon, Mickey Rooney, told a gripping story about how even he was the victim of elder abuse. It has become quite clear that the degree of this form of elder abuse is much more widespread than previously thought. We all need to be on the lookout for this abuse in our loved ones.
We have blogged before on the dangers of proposed HR 5 legislation, which in large part is designed to eliminate elder abuse claims.  Should this bill pass, our ability to prosecute such cases, uncover these horrors and protect the elderly will be severely limited.
Here is a link to the video of Mr. Rooney’s testimony.  It is worth watching.
