Saturday is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Today is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

Officials hope the day will help to promote a better understanding of abuse and neglect of the elderly. 

Elder abuse is a growing problem, but only 1 out of 14 cases are actually reported.

Indiana's largest Area Agency on Aging -- CICOA Aging and In-home Solutions, provides services for the elderly and their caregivers.

CICOA President Orion Bell says caregivers can get overwhelmed and not know how to care for the person.

Bell encourages caregivers to seek help and explore the many resources available.
