Films address elder abuse in people with dementia

Three short films have been developed that exemplify best-practice responses to cases of elder abuse in the context of dementia:

  • where the carer abuses the person with dementia
  • where the person with dementia abuses the carer
  • where there is neglect related to advancing dementia. 

These State Trustee funded films were co-produced with providers.

The film scripts have been developed with older people, carers, and service providers across aged care and health services.
