Every month, one in 10 older adults worldwide experience some form of abuse. But with only 1 in 24 cases of elder abuse reported, the true figures are likely to be much greater.

And today, we address abuse within people’s own homes (whether by family, friends or paid staff), within sheltered housing, and within care homes and hospitals.
