What are the effects of elder abuse?

From the National Council On Aging (NCOA):

Elders who have been abused have a 300% higher risk of death when compared to those who have not been mistreated. While likely underreported, elder financial abuse and fraud costs older Americans $36.5 billion per year. Yet, financial exploitation is self-reported at rates higher than emotional, physical, and sexual abuse or neglect.
