Elder Abuse

Is elder abuse still as big of a problem at institutions as it used to be?  What kind of resources are there for finding ratings of such places to determine how many complaints they've had?

Elder abuse is now coming to the attention of the authorities across the country. There is rampant emotional, physical, and financial abuse by many who are taking advantage of the elderly or those who can’t speak up for themselves. If you are concerned about a particular situation or institution, bring the abuse or concern you have to the attention of the local police.  They will direct you to the proper persons or agencies that can best address the problem in your community.
