We know that Elder Abuse is not ok.

But what is ok is asking questions about Elder Abuse. Too often we think we need to have all the answers about Elder Abuse before we do anything. So take the first step and call the Elder Abuse Helpline on 1800 441 169. Because it’s ok to ask the question.

The Elder Abuse Helpline is where you can ask questions about:

  • someone who you think is being abused
  • if you think you might be unintentionally causing harm
  • if you think you are being harmed

It’s ok to have concerns. It’s ok to want to help. It’s ok to ask for advice.

To ask questions or for more information call the Helpline on 1800 441 169.
