Improving Skills in Recognising & Responding to the Abuse of Older People

AUGUST 2016

PROVIDER: Northside Community Forum (NCF)
DATE: Wednesday 31 August, 2016
VENUE: Hornsby RSL

SYNOPSIS:

Elder abuse is much more common than our society has traditionally admitted. Much of the problem has been hidden, undefined and under reported. While elder abuse is not a new problem, our society is increasingly recognising and describing ‘elder abuse’ as a range of situations involving the maltreatment or neglect of older people by people they should be able to trust, such as family and friend.

To assist personnel working with the elderly, NCF are presenting two Elder Abuse information sessions in August (Hornsby) and October (Northern Beaches) and a train-the-trainer workshop (Lower North Shore) in September.
