Action on Elder Abuse is the only organisation that focuses exclusively on seeking to protect older people from abuse and neglect. We have been very active in seeking to influence the actions of Government and regulators in this regard and we work with a number of care provider organisations to improve standards and quality of care.
In addition to our helpline we are establishing community groups of the charity, actively involving older people in ways in which they can self-protect themselves and assist others to do so.
By becoming a member of the charity you can not only show your support for our work, but you can also receive information on the latest initiatives, And, if you are planning to move into residential accommodation, let us know and we will give you a letter from us to give to the Home owners. This will notify them that the charity will randomly and periodically check on your well being.
