  Title Commentary. Can healthcare providers contribute to the prevention of dependent adult abuse? Recognizing and intervening for caregiver stress
Journal Top Integr Health Care. 2011 ;2(3):Online access only 5 p
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes As Dr. Salsbury describes in her article, dependent adult abuse is an under-recognized issue in the U.S. However, it is one which must be addressed, not only because it currently affects many of our most vulnerable citizens—but also because it is likely to grow. Currently 1 in 7 Americans suffers a disability, and this number is expected to increase. For the disabled who require personal assistance, at least 75% of their caregivers are “informal,” being unpaid family members or friends living either inside or outside the disabled person’s home. Approximately 12% of middle-aged Americans currently are involved in caregiving for a family member, and this number is likely to increase as the number of disabled increases.
