Mapping the Gaps Between Expert and Public Understandings of Aging in America

Elder abuse is an issue that has struggled to rise to prominence on our national agenda. The 2010 Elder Justice Act is underfunded, and state and local resources are insufficient. In order to make the problem of elder abuse more of a public priority and create a productive public conversation,the Archstone Foundation and the John A. Hartford Foundation funded the Frameworks Institute to develop this report. "You Only Pray that Somebody Would Step In: Mapping the Gaps Between Expert and Public Understandings of Elder Abuse in America" represents the first step in a larger research project to develop a strategy that can foster better understanding of the issue, raise its salience in public thinking, and generate support for needed policies.
