The Retirement Village Residents Association has released an information leaflet about Psychological Elder Abuse. This information has been developed following the findings of our survey report on psychological abuse in NSW retirement villages.
The Retirement Village Residents Association has developed this informative leaflet in conjunction with our Survey Report about psychological elder abuse in NSW retirement communities.
The RVRA leaflet has been developed for Retirement Village residents to understand this prevalent type of abuse and assist with coping strategies and avenues for seeking help.
Please see below to read the leaflet, or to download for printing, and sharing.
