Elder Abuse

The spectrum of elder abuse can be very broad and may include: physical, social, psychological, sexual, emotional, financial, material, legal or regulatory abuse. Abuse may also include omissions or neglect, whether deliberate or unintentional, by oneself or others.

This resource manual acknowledges this broad spectrum and attempts to present the subject in a manner that can be manageable and understandable to the lay person. No single profession monopolizes the subject of elder ebuse, because many professions have important roles to play in both the prevention and the response to abusive situations. In general, the lay person’s role with respect to actual or suspected elder abuse is primarily to refer or to redirect the matter to an appropriate agency or resource.
