Elder Abuse Prevention

“When my husband started losing his memory, it became harder for me to take care of him on my own and we moved into our son’s house. I started noticing that my husband seemed afraid of our son, and I noticed the bruising on my dear husband’s arms. I was lost. How do you handle that? I called the care managers at MOW Diablo Region and got help. We are now living in a safe place and I have the support I need to make sure the love of my life is protected. I never thought I would have to deal with something like this. I’m so glad MOW Diablo Region was there!”
