The RACGP has realised new elder abuse guidelines to help people recognise and respond to suspected cases of elder abuse.
The guidelines describe the effects that the abuse can have for an individual, important warning signs and ways you can respond.
Monash Health has our own dedicated Elder Abuse Liaison Officer, Selina Nivelle. Selina is available to provide advice for any employee needing help with either recognising elder abuse or the steps to follow once it has been identified. She can be reached on 0431 453 950.
