Preventing Elder Abuse
WELCOME TO PREVENTING ABUSE OF OLDER PEOPLE
This site aims to assist staff of Aged Care Residential Facilities subsidised by the Commonwealth Government. Others working with or supporting older people will find the information relevant and useful in planning strategies with and for older people experiencing abuse. The content is aimed at sharing knowledge, information about resources and guidance regarding how to support the older people who are experiencing abuse.
ARAS through its Abuse Prevention Program, states that:
- ABUSE IS NOT OK
- ABUSE IS NOT NORMAL
- SOMETHING CAN BE DONE TO STOP ABUSE
- HELP IS AVAILABLE
- PLANNING AHEAD CAN PREVENT ABUSE
