Pennsylvania grant helps prevent elder and nursing home abuse

Recently, an emaciated and starving older woman was taken to a senior center. Her grandson stated that the woman did not have any more money and he could not afford to pay her living expenses himself. In reality, the grandson had spent a total $86,000 of his grandmother's money to finance his drug expenses and purchase other amenities for his personal benefit. Whether it is elder abuse or nursing home abuse, Pennsylvania senior citizens are vulnerable and it is important for anyone who discovers such abuse occurring to take legal action to put a stop to it.

According to predictions issued forth by the Social Security Administration, a quarter of all 20-year-olds will find themselves disabled b the age of 67.

Collecting government assistance can be greatly beneficial, but it is important that the information concerned parties have about the program is correct.
