Mandated Reporters -Elder Abuse, and Retaliation 2. post preliminary research information on your topic


 Mello-Granlund Older Californians Act  of 1965 is inacted to protect seniors


Between 1 and 2 million Americans age 65 or older have been injured, exploited, or otherwise mistreated by someone on whom they depended for care or protection.
Elder abuse defined refers to any knowing, intentional, or negligent act by a caregiver or any other person that causes harm, or a serious risk of harm, to a vulnerable adult. In California, anyone age 65 or older is protected by a special set of laws called The Elder Adult and Dependent Adult Civil Protection Act ("The Elder Abuse Act"), which is a powerful set of laws designed to help prevent neglect and abuse to California seniors. (Welf & I C 15600 et seq.) Under The Elder Abuse Act, "abuse" is defined includes any physical abuse, neglect, financial abuse, abandonment, isolation, abduction, or other treatment resulting in physical harm or pain or mental suffering.
