In order to be able to answer your question, more information is needed. But, generally it depends on what you mean by "harassing." Verbal abuse might fall under the definition of Elder Abuse. If you have not contacted the Sheriff's office, you should and let them know you want to make a complaint for elder abuse. You can also contact the Department of Human Services http://www.oregon.gov/DHS/spwpd/abuse/report.shtml.
