Elder Abuse: Domestic Violence In Later Life
Chelsey Perkins - Brainerd Dispatch


The issue of domestic violence is part of a national conversation as of late, brought to prominence by several high-profile incidents involving NFL players. It's likely most people, when thinking about the perpetrators and victims of domestic violence, picture young adults. Whether influenced by television, media or conventional wisdom, the idea that domestic violence is the province of the young is widespread.

This impression is a false one, said Trudy Gregorie, president of the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse. The incidence of domestic violence in adults 60 and older is "much more prevalent than most people suspect," she said.

Gregorie, who presented on the topic at the 2014 Minnesota TRIAD conference at Cragun's Resort last month, focused on abuse between elderly intimate partners. She and other abuse victim advocates are highlighting unique challenges faced by older adults as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October.
