Fraud Watch Friday: Elder Abuse In Indian Country
/

Our seniors are being impacted by the pandemic in disproportioned numbers. Isolation, dependency, and vulnerability open doors for our elders to be neglected or abused.

AARP Montana President Al Ward along with University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Science Associate Director of Center for Rural Health for Indigenous Programs and Director of the National Indigenous Elder Justice Initiative Jacque Gray, PhD discuss this under-reported issue across Montana’s reservations and the entire state and what can be done individually and policy-wise to prevent this abuse.
