Elder Sexual Abuse

Elder Sexual Abuse

Is Your Loved One Being Sexually Abused?

Sexual abuse is one of the most devastating types of abuse anyone can face, and elderly people are especially vulnerable because they may lack the metal or physical ability to protect themselves or even seek help later on. The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR), one of the leading organizations investigating cases of sexual abuse in America, reported that about 83 percent of people older than 65 live in a nursing home or in an adult care facility, and only an estimated 30 percent senior citizens report their abuse. Caregivers are the abusers in more than eight out of 10 cases, and a witness is present in more than 75 percent of cases.

  • Extreme agitation
  • New sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Withdrawal from social activities
  • Suicide attempts
  • Withdrawal from social activities
  • Unusual or inappropriate behavior between the abuse suspect and the victim
  • Emerging symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or panic attacks
  • Unusual, aggressive or inappropriate sexual behavior
  • Bruising around the genital area or on the inner thighs
  • Pelvic injuries
