Video- Elder Abuse. Know the signs.
What does elder abuse look like? It may be physical, financial or psychological, but many Australians do not see the abuse that older people sometimes suffer. Last week, on International Day of Older Persons, Age Discrimination Commissioner Dr Kay Patterson launched a campaign centred on a hard-hitting video that identifies the “red flags” of elder abuse to build greater awareness in the community.
If you experience, witness or suspect elder abuse, you can call the National Elder Abuse phone line for information, support and referrals. The National Elder Abuse phone line is Australia-wide, free and confidential. You can call the National Elder Abuse phone line on 1800ELDERHelp, 1800 353 374.
