Each year an estimated 5 million American elder adults are abused, neglected or exploited. Some experts believe that for every case reported, there are 23 more that go unreported.

Such acts include neglectful behavior however unintentional it may seem. Some states consider self-neglect as a form of elder abuse as well.
