The Older Person’s Experience – Outcomes of Interventions into Elder Abuse
On World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (June 15) the National Ageing Research Institute and Senior’s Rights Victoria released their new report: “The Older Person’s Experience – Outcomes of Interventions into Elder Abuse”.
The study aimed to better understand the older person’s experience of elder abuse, the interventions used to address elder abuse and the outcome of the intervention for ex-clients who contacted Seniors Rights Victoria. It makes for very interesting and informative reading, and is the only Australian study we know of that looks at elder abuse from older peoples’ perspective. The report also contains recommendations, formed from the advice of the courageous participants, which will be of great use to both older people and policy-makers alike.
