What is elder abuse?

Elder abuse is any act causing harm to an older person that is carried out by someone they know and trust, such as a family member, relative or friend. The abuse may be physical, social, financial, psychological or sexual, and can include mistreatment and neglect.

Elder abuse most commonly occurs within the family. Although it is believed to be greatly under-reported, the World Health Organisation estimates elder abuse affects 1-10 per cent of older people worldwide.
