Hanny has worked with Age Concern New Zealand since 2013 with a focus on Elder Abuse and Neglect Prevention and some local Age Concern community activities. Her mahi is inspired by the workers throughout the country supporting older people who have experienced abuse and their family/whanau; as well as many Age Concern’s superb efforts to enhance the wellbeing of older people in their communities.
The veiled issues of abuse have arisen throughout her work experience in hospital, residential and community settings with older people and with those with disabilities. We will explore how the Changing Face of Ageing impacts on our knowledge of elder abuse and neglect and our practice.
This conference is a wonderful opportunity for us all to learn from the range of topics being presented. These show how many diverse facets are involved in living - and therefore ageing - in our society. It is fantastic that Ageing Concerns Everyone!
