This booklet is designed as a reference for organizations when responding to inquiries about elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Many times, the inquiries pose some hard-to-answer questions, and this booklet pulls together what is known about elder abuse to provide suggestions on how we can respond. Remember that in addition to questions about the topic in general, we should be able to answer this question: “What are we doing about the problem?” Taking a quick inventory of our efforts as well as those at the state and local levels will help us to be prepared for such a question.
