Research has found that childhood abuse and trauma can increase the risk of developing mental health disorders and alcohol or drug addiction in adulthood.
Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity, respect and kindness in old age, so when you or an elderly person is being abused in care, it can be extremely distressing.
Abuse can take many forms, including:
So if you believe an elderly relative has been abused by those responsible for looking after them, or if you yourself have suffered this type of abuse, our Abuse Claims Solicitors can help you.

If you believe you are suffering from any kind of abuse in care, then it’s important to remember there is always someone you can talk to. For example:
If an elderly person has spoken to you about their abuse, there are several people you can speak to for advice.
For example, you can contact the Local Council if you’re worried about somebody not being treated properly in a care home or being mistreated by a carer. You may be put in touch with the Council’s adult safeguarding coordinator and given the opportunity to present your concerns to them.
Another option is to go to the police, as they may be able to take criminal action against the person or organisation responsible for the abuse.
