Elder Abuse App
Elder Help App
Older Persons Advocacy Network has developed a mobile application (Elder Help) and a video (‘Noticed Something?’) which aim to provide information to volunteers and all those in contact with older people to recognise the possible signs of abuse. These resources also educate the wider community on the rights of older people receiving aged care, and how to access aged care advocacy services.
Darwin Community Legal Service operates the Elder Abuse Information Line to assist elderly people suffering from abuse, making referrals to support organisations and providing legal information to people wanting to make informed choices about their situation. The Elder Abuse Information Line (1800 037 072) is available from 9 am – 5 pm Monday to Friday and is free to call from landlines and public phones. If you are calling from a mobile phone, please let us know and we can call you back.
