Elderly women and victimization

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Elder abuse is a less recognized and addressed form of violence. Women live longer than men, and are more likely to be victims of elder abuse. Contrary to previous conclusions that incidents of battering decrease over the lifespan, new research tracks the co-occurrence of varied forms of violence in the lives of elderly women. Patterns of violence extend over the entire lifespan, and battered women are more likely to be victims in elder years of physical and emotional abuse by partners, other family members, and by care-givers. Children of violent homes often continue the violence, and may offend elderly parents. Research suggests that we should be more vigilant in tracking the co-occurrence of violence in the lives of older women
