MPR Report: Spousal abuse can last a lifetime

MPR aired a report on domestic abuse among elder couples. This insightful report highlighted special issues related to later life abuse, including cultural and generational differences and lack of resources to find help.

You can read the article or listen to the report on the MPR website.

The following resources can assist those dealing with domestic abuse:
  • Senior LinkAge Line: 1-800-333-2433
  • Minnesota Domestic Violence Crisis Line: 1-866-223-1111
  • If not in Minnesota, the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233)
