By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. a New Jersey Elder Abuse Attorney

When making the call to report suspected elder abuse, be ready to give the elder’s name, address, contact information, and details about why you are concerned.

You may be asked a series of questions to gain more insight into the nature of the situation.
Are there any known medical problems (including confusion or memory loss)?
What kinds of family or social supports are there?
Have you seen or heard incidents of yelling, hitting, or other abusive behavior?
You will be asked for your name, address, telephone number, etc., but most states will take the report even if you do not identify yourself.
