There are many reasons why elder abuse occurs. It often stems from attitudes that are ageist, and disrespectful of older people.
The majority of cases that Age Concerns work with involves older people living in their own homes. In most instances it is family members like adult children who perpetrate elder abuse or neglect.

I am applying for postgraduate programs in psychology and want some volunteer experience on my CV for when I apply. I am currently in the process of working as a youth mentor which is great. Would like to add another volunteer experience that would be in a role of care (i.e., working with refugees or children with learning disabilities). The work must be face to face to show I have had real experience. Please let me know if you know of any positions or can personally recommend any amazing organisation. I have a BA in Psychology and Sociology.
