Elder abuse is becoming a growing concern within the UK. Research done by the charity, Action on Elder Abuse found that over 300,000 people over the age of 65 will suffer abuse of some sort.
Abuse can be anything from emotional or physical abuse to financial abuse. Like many forms of abuse, elderly abuse can often go unnoticed with those being abused feeling too ashamed or scared to speak out. Often, when victims do speak out they aren’t taken seriously.
At Slater and Gordon we understand the difficulties that are faced when fighting abuse. We work closely with our clients and their families to uncover the cause of abuse and achieve the justice they deserve.
