Thank you. Abuse is a crime against the State of Texas and if there is evidence of it, the State can file criminal charges and represent your legal interest, as the victim. As such, you can go to the police and file a report and have this looked into. Moreover, abuse of a senior who is not in a health care facility can be reported to Adult Protective Services at(###) ###-####
