Would you recognise if an older neighbour, friend or relative was being abused?
Age Action is organising a series of workshops around Ireland in the coming weeks to raise awareness among the general public about what elder abuse is, the warning signs of abuse, the supports available if a person is being abused, and how to access those supports.
Age Action is shocked at the Government’s decision not to appoint a junior minister with responsibility for older people or ageing in the new administration.

Age Action has welcomed the wide-ranging commitments to the development of policies and services for older people contained in the new programme for Government.
