About Elder Sexual Abuse
Elder sexual abuse is any unwanted sexual conduct against a person over the age of 60. It can also be harm by tricking, manipulating, or coercing the elder person into undesired sexual contact. This includes sexual contact with an elderly person that is unable to communicate consent or disapproval.
Unfortunately, there is little research about elder sexual abuse. Therefore, it is often understood. The abuse tends to cause medical problems resulting in difficulties communicating with confusion or memory loss. This doesn’t help with reporting the abuse.
