More government involvement (mandates) NEVER a good thing. As Ms. Perine stated, there are already guidelines in place in the banking industry. They're there in Elder Abuse laws as well. Disappointed in Mr. Thompson.

I don't know much about Adult Protective Services in this county? Where do you report the abuse? What services do they provide? What are their current caseloads like? And, how much do we pay for the service?
