Abstract

Elder abuse is a global problem with an estimated 10% of older people experiencing some form of abuse although many cases remain unreported and/or referred to social services. As such the true extent of elder abuse is relatively unknown and this poses significant challenges given the demographic changes wherein people are living longer. Maltreatment of older people, commonly referred to as elder abuse, is multidimensional and includes psychological, physical, sexual abuse, neglect and financial exploitation.
