Caregivers’ Circle – Elder Abuse: The Overlooked Public Health Crisis – Know the Signs!

When at least 10% of individuals over 65 experience some form of abuse – financial, physical, sexual or neglect – why are we not hearing more about this in the mainstream media?  This week’s guest, Matt Kudish, Senior Vice President of Caregiver Services Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter and I discuss some of the barriers to identifying and reporting abuse.  We also discuss some of the verbal and non-verbal ways those with Dementia may be communicating potential harm.

It is not always easy to find a specialist to assist us when we have a medical or health issue.  GoTelecare solves this problem by offering you the opportunity to meet with doctors within your insurance plan network virtually through a telehealth service so you can get the specialized care you need.
