Elder Abuse. What can you do to help?

Thousands of older Australians experience elder abuse every year, sometimes from those closest to them.

Elder abuse can be financial, physical, psychological, emotional and sexual abuse, or neglect, and sometimes the signs aren’t always obvious.

If you are concerned about someone you know, you don’t have to have all the answers. Call the free and confidential National Elder Abuse phone line on 1800 ELDERHelp (or 1800 353 374) for information, support and referrals.
