Elder Abuse, defined as an act that causes harm or distress to an older person, is both a form of domestic violence and bullying
Elder Abuse can often be disguised as a form of Domestic Violence, occurring between family members behind closed doors. Elder abuse is also a form of bullying, and can come in the forms of verbal, emotional, physical and financial abuse.
