Summary: "This program addresses a number of elder abuse-related topics, including the embezzlement of elders' funds by family members; the criminal neglect and endangerment of housebound and bedridden elders by their children and friends; and alleged mercy killings of terminally ill elders by their spouses. The case of a senior-stalker who murdered over a dozen elderly women and the story of a parent-abuser turned elder-advocate are also presented."--Container
