The Administration on Aging (AOA) defines elder abuse as "any knowing, intentional, or negligent act by a caregiver or any other person that causes harm or a serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult." Legally, the problem is addressed on the state level, with all fifty states offering some form of elder abuse prevention law. While stipulations may vary among these state laws, elder abuse can be broadly defined to include the following: physical abuse; sexual abuse; neglect; exploitation; emotional abuse; abandonment; and self-neglect.
