If a loved one or family member has been neglected or abused at an assisted living facility, nursing home, or adult residential care home, we can help. Tragically, elder abuse in Hawaii is on the rise. In its 2014 Annual Report, Hawaii’s Adult Protective and Community Services Branch reported that it investigated 1,014 reports of suspected abuse or neglect, and 79% of them involved individuals age 60 and older.

Allegations and investigations into elder abuse in Hawaii have climbed steadily over the past few years, and remain on an upward trajectory. Elder abuse comes in many different forms, ranging from sexual and/or physical assault to gross neglect. Individuals with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other disabilities can be especially vulnerable to abuse and neglect. We are dedicated to making sure that Hawaii’s kūpuna are treated with respect and dignity in their golden years.

Oftentimes, incidents of abuse and neglect go unreported.

Family members may be unaware, or the victim may fear retaliation if they voice their concerns. If you suspect a loved one or family member may have been, or is still being neglected at an assisted living facility, nursing home, or adult residential care home, we urge you to call us as well as the appropriate authorities.
