Do Most Elderly Abuse Victims Get the Support They Need

It’s estimated that as many as five million older adults are abused in the U.S. each year. These numbers may seem impossibly high, and lead many to ask: where does most elder abuse occur? Elder abuse has been known to happen in a person’s own home, in the home of a friend or family member, in a hospital, or in any other residential or healthcare setting. There is evidence that nursing home abuse is one of the most prevalent types of elder abuse.

There are a lot of advantages to choosing a vacation rental home over a hotel, resort, or other short-term travel accommodation. Renting a vacation home can be a great option for groups or families looking to get away and spend quality time together in a more spacious, private, and homelike environment than a commercial hotel. Online vacation rental marketplaces like VRBO, HomeAway, FlipKey, and Airbnb have capitalized on the merits their properties offer to travelers looking for more isolated vacation alternatives amid pandemic-era concerns.

French novelist Marcel Proust once described a character recalling vivid memories from childhood after eating a madeleine cookie dipped in tea. Often, senses like taste and smell can cause these “Proustian memories.” Disney Pixar’s Ratatouille showed this moment when Anton Ego, the food critic, takes a bite of ratatouille and remembers his childhood. Talk about a time you had a Proustian memory. What triggered the memory? How far back did it reach? What did you reflect on after remembering that moment? Did it change you or give you a new perspective?
