Tens of Thousands Suffer in Silence

Submitted Article

"It's a hidden epidemic," says Daniel Reingold, president and chief executive officer of the Hebrew Home for the Aged in Riversdale, New York, who compares the current awareness of late-life domestic violence to the nascent domestic violence and child-abuse movements 25 years ago.

"Which to say, we don't have any agreed-upon definitions, and intervention is sporadic and uneven."



What they are saying is late-life domestic violence will be in twenty-five where child abuse is today , a comforting thought for those younger readers
