Elder Abuse

No older person should be subjected to any form of abuse, often referred to as ‘Elder abuse’. Elder abuse can take various forms such as physical, psychological or emotional, sexual or financial abuse. It can also be the result of intentional or unintentional neglect.
Elder abuse can be defined as “a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust which causes harm or distress to an older person” (World Health Organization).
If you are concerned about elder abuse you may want information about the issue, or the opportunity to talk to someone independently about your concerns and the options for getting help.
