Editorial Reviews

Abuse is far more than rough or violent physical interactions. For frail elderly, unable to care for themselves, abuse may be neglect, ridicule, negative attitudes, verbal disrespect, lack of response to reported pain, failure to observe or report poor response to a medication or change in mental status, or lack of assistance required. In this insightful DVD, interviews with older individuals redefine the word "abuse." While these individuals live in a nursing home, their expanded definition is relevant for individuals in assisted living, day care programs or rehabilitation facilities.
Find out what it feels like to be thirsty, hungry or soiled with no one responding to your needs. Hear about being ignored when you’re in pain, when you have a new medical complication or when your day has been ruined by some one who does not respect you. Even not having your choices respected about what you wish to wear, where you want to sit, or your food preferences is a form of abuse. These seniors make a desperate plea to be treated with dignity, as individuals of worth. Hearing the words in their own voices is far more powerful than any presentation. This DVD should be used by all programs training staff who will be working with the elderly.
