Elder Abuse Globe

When his elderly mother died, 63-year-old “Frank” returned to Philadelphia to care for his 84-year-old father, who suffers from dementia.   Immediately after his mother's funeral, Frank's niece, who had been living in the home, brandished a gun and threatened to kill him and everyone in the home…then later beat Frank with a metal pipe.  Frank was taken to the emergency room with head trauma.  The niece was arrested and convicted of possession of an instrument of crime with intent, simple assault, and terroristic threats with intent to terrorize another.  SeniorLAW Center staff represented Frank in his Protection from Abuse case.  We were successful in obtaining a three-year, final protection order for Frank and worked with Frank to help him find counseling, respite care, home repairs and other resources for support so that he and his elderly dad could live in peace.   Two generations in need.

Please join us in our fight for Frank and hundreds of other elders we represent each year who face abuse, violence and financial exploitation. Considering making a donation before our fiscal year ends on June 30. Your gift will be matched by our new Independence Foundation Challenge Grant in honor of our 35th anniversary of pursuing justice for our elders.
