Aging America: Elder abuse, use of shelters rising - Article Photos 3/3

In this Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013 photo, caregiver Kim Bauer, right, pauses as the elderly woman she is helping looks at a decorative fireplace at Cedar Village retirement community, in Mason, Ohio. The woman she is helping has suffered abuse by a relative. The Shalom Center that is a part of the community helps the woman by offering shelter, along with medical, psychological and legal help, to elderly abuse victims in this northern Cincinnati suburb. The center asked that her identity be protected for this story because the close relatives who allegedly abused her don't know where she is. (AP Photo/Al Behrman)
