My best friends sister works in a care home for old people. She keeps talking about abuse of old people by some of the staff. What is considered abuse of the elderly? Like should I be turning them in or something?

That isn’t right. I think you should speak out and say something. Hurting the old people isn’t okay. I needs to be reported. No matter if it’s holding back meals, hitting them or just mental abuse. None of it is okay.

Elderly abuse is pretty serious and should be taken as such. Abuse of the elderly can be anything from holding back medication or meals, or it could be physical like hitting or tripping a person who trusts these workers to take care of them.
