Q: ? my sister abuses my mother I watched her slap my mother four times yesterday on her birthday she 72 then I got involve
A: I am not sure if you have a specific question, but when there are incidents of physical, emotional or financial abuse of seniors (or any adult for that matter), there are resources for assistance. The first is law enforcement and if you witness physical abuse, you can call the police and file a report. The second is the Department of Human Resources for the State of Alabama- Adult Protective Services Division. For more information on this division see http://dhr.alabama.gov/services/adult_protective_services/adult_protective_services.aspx
