Factors including COVID-19 and the cost-of-living crisis have created significant uncertainty in Australia, especially among older people. Now, it is more important than ever for older people to be aware of their rights, be in control and safeguard their future.  

If you are experiencing elder abuse or you think you have recognised someone you know who is experiencing elder abuse, contact APEA on (08) 8232 5377.
