The State Long Term Care Ombudsman Program responds to many types of complaints from nursing home residents, including reports of abuse and neglect. The agency responsible for investigating allegations of abuse or neglect in long term care facilities, however, is the Illinois Department of Public Health."

"This site is about elder abuse. On this site there is a story of a mom and a boy. The boy was an alcohol and drug user for years. Then the boy started abusing his mom Alice because after work he would stop at the corner bar after work. Alice his mom said to him before he moved in that he can live with her under one condition. The condition was that he could not drink or do drugs. He didnt listen. Then one night the boy came home he started abusing Alice. She fled for safety to her neighbours house. There are definitions on physical, sexual, emotional abuse and neglect. There is no games or activities. On this site there is a bunch of references to books to find more info on elderly abuse. There is warning signs of elderly people getting abused and people who abuse elderly. I think it is a good site because it has good information on elderly abuse."
