Stop elder abuse
ELDER abuse can take many forms – it’s any act within a relationship of trust that results in harm to an older person. Recognising the signs of all types of elder abuse and calling out the abusive behaviours is important, because everyone in Queensland has the right to be safe and treated with dignity and respect. Find out more about how to see the signs and access help. If you’re concerned that you or someone you know is experiencing elder abuse, phone 1300 651 192 for free, confidential advice and support.
