Event description

Description

Come along and hear what the President of the Australian Human Rights Commission has to tell us about ELDER ABUSE.

Elder Abuse affects us all. It is defined as a single or repeated act or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust which causes harm or distress to an older person (World Health Organisation). This form of abuse includes financial, physical, emotional and sexual abuse as well as neglect.

We need to protect our older Australians by being more aware of the issues, indications and action we can take. We also need to be able to protect ourselves from this form of abuse.

EVERYONE has a part to play in addressing this issue – doctors, hairdressers, bank staff, aged care workers, neighbours ... EVERYONE!!

____

Learn more about Elder Abuse at the Griffith Community Forum.

The keynote address will be given by Emeritus Professor Rosalind Croucher, President of the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Other speakers include:

Tammy Cabban, Advocate/Educator, Seniors Rights Service, South West NSW;

And a representative from NSW Police.
