Summary:

Dependent adult and elder abuse is an unfortunate occurrence, yet widespread in the United States. Elders and dependent adults are often the targets of physical, psychological, and sexual abuse; and neglect. While federal law broadly defines dependent adult and elder abuse, each state is charged with refining and specifying what constitutes dependent and elder abuse, and outlining report and investigation procedures. Clinicians should pay attention to particular indicators of abuse during an assessment. Iowa Code defines categories of mandatory reporters who are required to report cases of suspected dependent and elder abuse. The Iowa Department of Human Services provides guidelines about the process for assessment and investigation procedures for these reports. DHS staff members assess the level of risk to the dependent adult or elder and make recommendations for action to ensure the safety and well-being of the individual.
