Violence and Injury Prevention

Elder abuse

WHO/Sergey Volkov

The abuse of older adults occurs all too frequently but remains a largely hidden problem. It is predicted to increase as many countries are experiencing rapidly ageing populations. Elder abuse can lead to serious physical injuries and long-term psychological consequences, increased risk of nursing home placement, use of emergency services, hospitalization and death. Promising prevention and response strategies include:
? professional awareness campaigns to help health care workers recognize elder abuse
? caregiver support to reduce stress and training on dementia
? residential care policies to define and improve standards of care
