Abuse of Vulnerable Elders.


Now that the “Baby P” , we are still denied his name and he is still denied dignity even in death, has received serious attention in media and government circles we hope that the same tenacity to get things right will be applied to the elderly in care homes.   There have been and there still are documented cases of the abuse of the elderly in care homes.   Vulnerable, elderly adults need protection from abuse as much as children do.

The government really needs to address concerns in regard to vulnerable elderly people.   Not only are some elderly in homes daily abused but some families also abuse their vulnerable relatives.  There needs to legislation to extend the same rights to vulnerable adults as has been done for vulnerable children.

    We, as the general public have to do everything we can to combat abuse of any type. Whereforcare.co.uk is the childcare and carehomes ratings and reviews information website where those who have experience of care, such as parents, relatives and professionals are encouraged to write about their experiences in order to help those who are looking to choose the right care. If you have an opinion on childcare or carehomes in your area, feel free to write a review at http://www.whereforcare.co.uk
