Australia, NSW Creator: NSW Elder Abuse helpline and resource unit Available for: Desktop, Mobile Last reviewed: 01/03/2018

Review: Support services, including a telephone helpline for people living in NSW, which provides information and referrals for seniors who are victims of psychological, financial, sexual, neglect or physical abuse. There is a PDF Toolkit which includes a section on risk factors for abuse. This section clearly identifies alcohol, substance or polydrug use (including prescription and OTC medications) abuse as significant risk factors. An excellent information site for professionals, GP's, families and carers.
