A 2006 survey of state adult protective agencies found 565,747 reports of abuse of vulnerable adults in one year. With 89% of reports occurring in domestic settings, it's a disturbing snapshot of mistreatment of people in their own homes, mostly by their own kin, who are also likely to be their caretakers. According to a yardstick developed by researchers, only one instance of abuse in fourteen becomes known. A U.S. Senate committee has estimated the number of victims at five million yearly. As boomers age, the number is bound to multiply. (AARP Bulletin 7-8/07)
