Dear [Decision Maker],
In 2016, 25,000 elder abuse reports were received by the Minnesota Department of Health. These reports included elders being robbed, sexually assaulted, neglected, and beaten. Sadly, over 90% of these cases were never investigated and the abusers went largely unpunished.This must stop! Minnesota's seniors are relying on you to fix a broken system that leaves so many vulnerable to attack. The long-term care industry is asking for more time to examine the issue. In the meantime, the Department of Health continues to receive an average of 400 reports of abuse a week.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
