Elder abuse includes physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; exploitation, neglect, and abandonment; and self-neglect. Elder abuse encompasses both domestic and institutional abuse. Domestic abuse occurs when the abuse is committed by someone with whom the older adult has a trusted relationship, including a spouse, child, caregiver, or friend. Institutional abuse occurs within the context of an institutional setting (nursing home, assisted-living or personal care home, etc). Elder abuse is a sad fact of life for too many older Americans; it has negative outcomes, regardless of the type of abuse involved. Often the signs of elder abuse are not obvious, and as most of the abuse occurs in the privacy of the home, may not be noticed by people outside the family.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
