Abstract

In order to gain a greater understanding of what "elder abuse" means to the American public, a random sample of adults from seven culturally diverse counties in North Carolina was interviewed. Two of the six Native American groups residing in North Carolina were represented in the sample. The two Native American groups' responses were compared with each other and with the views of a panel of elder mistreatment experts. There were areas of agreement and disagreement. The relevance of the findings is discussed in relation to research, practice, education, and policy.
