Do you have any concerns about abuse of an older person?
If you are concerned about an older person in your life suffering from abuse, it is important to talk to someone about it.
Moving house is considered one of the most unsettling life events and can be particularly stressful for older people moving from their home into residential care. If the move is a result of a medical crisis or done quickly with little time to prepare, this can add to the distress. And if your loved one is experiencing dementia, moving into residential care can be confusing and frightening.
Possibly the most unexpected outcome of the COVID-19 crisis has been the intense focus on our relationships. Being in lockdown has forced us to spend time together in ways that many of us have not experienced before.
