Neglect, Including Failure to Provide Reasonable Care
Around 10% of elderly people are abused each year in the U.S.
Women experience elder abuse more often than men.
Colorado has experienced a growing number of elder abuse and neglect reports each year – over 25,000 reports in FY 2018-19 alone.
People with dementia or other physical or mental impairments suffer a higher rate of mistreatment.
If you believe it is a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
Contact Colorado’s Adult Protective Services (APS) or the Wyoming Department of Family Services for information about policies and services.
Contact the nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys at the Olson Law Firm for help.
Report the neglect or abuse to the local APS office.
