abstract

  • Prevalence of APS use by older adults is substantial, and sociodemographic features were the most compelling risk factors in our cohort. As the population ages, the number of older adults at risk for abuse, neglect, self-neglect, exploitation, and abandonment will increase; physicians will need to become familiar with APS referral pathways and mandatory reporting laws in their states.
