Elder Abuse and Neglect is an ever growing problem facing our society today. By informing the public on the signs and symptoms we can help bring a stop to this dreadful act.
Videos are a terrific way to display information about elder abuse and neglect as they are interesting, easy to watch and easily shareable. At the Peck Law Group we are constantly moving towards the goal of eliminating elder neglect and abuse in California and throughout the United States.
Your submitted elder abuse video may inform thousands of Americans of the signs and symptoms of abuse and can possibly land you a $1000 scholarship if we choose your video!
Here’s more information on elder abuse in nursing homes and assisted living facilities:
Simply send an email with your original video on elder abuse and/or neglect to [email protected] and include the following information:
Please be sure to include an article of at least 500 words with your video detailing what you discussed, including links to referenced statistics or studies if mentioned. For example: “Past research studies have shown that there are significant correlations between the number of nurses and nurse aides, rate of staff turnover, number of beds at a facility, and the total incidents involving patient mistreatment.”
Please note: Videos and articles must be 100% original and created by you (cannot be AI generated). Your submission will be checked for plagiarism and originality. If any part is plagiarized / not written by you it will not be accepted. Additionally, all images and content included in your video / article must be original and royalty free (no copy and pasting infographics and/or images from other websites).
