Spotting the Signs of Abuse

An estimated half million older people are harmed, abused and neglected every day in their own homes by people they thought they could trust.

This booklet provides advice and information on types of abuse, signs and risk factors of abuse, and helpful organisations if you know or fear an older person is at risk or being abused.
