Unfortunately those being abused are often the least likely to bring the situation to anyone's attention. Your concerns will be taken seriously, we will listen to you and support you.
If you suspect that somebody is being abused please do not ignore it. Remember, if you think something is wrong it probably is.
Information and practical advice will also be provided to the person who is at risk of abuse, so that they can make an informed choice about any help they might need, or any action they may wish to take.
If they are not able to make an informed choice, we will ensure that we speak to someone who can act on their behalf.
Self-neglect includes a wide range of behaviours such as an adult neglecting to care for their own personal hygiene, health or surroundings and includes behaviour such as hoarding.
Tickets for all of our Dementia-Friendly screenings are priced at £4, and free for carers.
