Abuse of Older People Increasing (I.E)

Health bits: Abuse of older people increasing
May 23 2011

There were 2,110 complaints of abuse of older people reported to the Health Service Executive (HSE) last year but this is likely to be an underestimate.
Oonagh McAteer, an elder abuse officer with the HSE, said the real incidence could be five times higher than this.
Psychological abuse is the main problem, followed by financial abuse in nearly one-in-five cases. More than one in 10 were suffering physical abuse.
