Elder abuse is a growing problem around the country. Steve Vickman, executive director of HELP of Door County says it’s no different here at home.
Vickman says 26% of Door County residents are over 60 years old, while the state average is only about 15%. He says our older population is living longer and tend to be in much better health than previous generations. His office is continuing to work with local seniors to call attention to abuse issues.
