Elder abuse

Elder abuse

The Domestic Violence Act 1995 broadened the legal definition of family violence to include violence between same-sex partners, flatmates, carers and other family members. These changes were partly a response to growing awareness about such problems as elder abuse – the abuse of older people by carers or family members. This brochure, produced by Age Concern, advertises the Elder Abuse and Neglect Prevention Service.
