- Actor Mickey Rooney Speaks Out Against Elder Abuse in AZ
Elder abuse is a growing problem in Arizona and in the rest of the United States, and perhaps the worst aspect of this real problem is the fact that for the most part, it’s a silent problem. Older people who are being abused are often times unable to bring attention to the situation, and many other older people who suffer from abusers simply do not come forward because of fear and/or embarrassment. While the specifics of the situation are unfortunate, it could turn out to be the positive impetus that leads those who need it to seek the help of Arizona elder abuse lawyers now that Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney has spoken out in regards to his own horrifying experience.
Arizona Nursing Home Abuse and Micky Rooney
Mr. Rooney, who has been a known Hollywood name since he was a child, spoke to the United States Congress last week regarding the issue of elder abuse after having suffered through this treatment, allegedly at the hands of his stepson, although Mr. Rooney’s wife and stepson deny these allegations. Mr. Rooney told the legislators about his experiences that included being denied food and medicine and having his Oscar sold for cash. Mr. Rooney decided to speak publicly in regards to this situation because he wanted to bring awareness to the issue.
Elder abuse is a problem that does undetected by many people, but most experts agree that the situation is likely to get worse in Arizona and around the United States before it gets better. That’s because the population of the United States is aging collectively, and this aging process is placing a growing strain on meeting the growing demand for beds, facilities and ongoing care for older Americans. As a result, mistakes will occur with the hiring of staff and problems regarding Arizona elder abuse will slip through the cracks.
