The New York State Office for Aging will develop new guidelines to help health care providers identify elder abuse. That is thanks to a new law signed by the governor last week. The measure's sponsors say it's important to get doctors, nurses and any one else who regulary sees senior citizens involved because many victims won't report neglect or abuse. Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo and Art Mason, the director of the elder abuse prevention program for Lifespan, explain.
