Understanding Elder Abuse: New Directions for Developing Theories of Elder Abuse Occurring in Domestic Settings
Shelly J. Jackson (au); Thomas L. Hafemeister (au)
As of 2010, 13% of the population was age 65 and older, with this group expected to comprise 19.3% of the population by 2030. Elder abuse is both a pervasive problem and a growing concern. The vast majority (96.9%) of older Americans are residing in domestic settings, so it is not surprising that the majority (89.3%) of elder abuse reported to Adult Protective Services (APS) occurs in domestic settings. And yet the field has generated few theory-based explanations of what causes elder abuse and how best to respond to it. This study reports the findings of two studies funded by the Nat. Institute of Justice (NIJ) in an effort to begin to fill this void. The theoretical directions suggested are intended to spur the critique of existing theories and facilitate the development of new theories that will enhance our understanding of elder abuse. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
