I always thought that elder abuse should be a crime and not just a civil matter, until elder abuse becomes a crime and the perpetrators are held accountable even when they happen to be family members this horrendous crime is due to rise to epidemic proportions, laws are written by attorneys and until attorneys who make their money by putting the elders in Guardianships are held accountable for their crimes against the elderly I see little hope for America's aging population who fall between the cracks from being exploited.
