Description

This screening tool is intended to help front-line staff in assisting seniors in situations where elder abuse is suspected. Many seniors are reluctant to disclose abuse or agree to assistance. They may be embarrassed, fear their abusers, worry about retribution or be unaware of services or supports that may be available to them. The wishes of seniors who may be experiencing abuse must be respected. Assistance should not be forced upon an individual, even if it seems to be in his or her best interest. This tool is intended to help service providers identify situations where abuse may be occurring and some steps that can be taken to assist seniors in these situations.
