Ms Bray explains how ageism is leading to people being treated differently or are having their decision making rights ignored as they age. Referring to research she conducted with seniors or culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) seniors, she discusses the complexities of understanding elder abuse within multicultural contexts. Ms Bray explains how elder abuse prevention needs more research, but research is difficult because these matters are taboo and are kept hidden. She shares the ideas of seniors she consulted with, and also the findings of the findings of the review of prevention projects aimed at CALD communities that she conducted for the Senior’s Rights Service and the Ethnic Communities’ Council of NSW.
