Arizona Elder Abuse Attorney
Under Arizona law, elder abuse occurs when a person age 60 or older is subject to:
Physical abuse - the willful infliction of physical pain or injury or unreasonable confinement (includes sexual contact or exposure without consent or when the elder is incapable of giving consent);
Material abuse - the misuse of property or financial resources;
Neglect - a caregiver's failure to provide food, shelter, clothing, medical, or dental care resulting in significant danger to the physical or mental health of the elder person;
Self-neglect - significant danger to an elder person's physical or mental health because the elder person is unable or fails to provide food, shelter, clothing, medical or dental care.
