Elder Abuse Advocates Plead For Legislators To Act

SAINT PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Family members and advocates are pleading lawmakers to take action against elder abuse in Minnesota.

After months of research, members of Elder Voice Family Advocates delivered a white boxes full of detailed reports Monday morning to state senators in St. Paul.

The group has been working to put together a list of the elder abuse investigations sparked by complaints to the state.

They claim nearly 1,800 complaints over the past three years were recorded and posted on the state’s website — that’s only a fraction of the more than 24,000 complaints received in 2017 alone.
