Films Support Staff to Respond to Elder Abuse and Dementia

A new film series has launched to provide aged care and healthcare workers with the knowledge and confidence to respond to cases of elder abuse among people with dementia.

The National Ageing Research Institute launched the series Balancing the older person’s rights and carers needs: Elder abuse in the context of dementia on the 16th of March 2020.

The three short films address financial abuse, neglect in advanced dementia and physical abuse of the carer by the person with dementia.
