Title in English A broad definition and typology of elder abuse: the phenomenon of abuse, exploitation, neglect and other inappropriate actions and treatment of older men and women (EAN). Methodology


Year of publication 2023
Description The aim of the methodology is to provide an understanding of elder abuse, its typology, manifestations, risks of occurrence and procedures for its detection and resolution. The methodology helps to translate knowledge in the field of elder abuse into practice for those who come into contact with older people on a regular basis. This can be essentially anyone who is not, or should not be, indifferent to the inappropriate treatment of an older person. Primarily, the methodology is intended for people working in support services, with recommendations for other relevant actors, such as general practitioners and specialists, police, social departments of local authorities, etc. However, it can also be used by the interested public and non-profit organisations, which also have an indispensable role to play in addressing this phenomenon. The presented procedures and recommendations are based on the research activities of the RESTABUS project, which are based on the findings of other research teams from all over the world and a wide range of scientific disciplines, as well as on many years of experience in working with the older people.
