The Country Close enquiry ‐ some issues raised
The Journal of Adult Protection
Article publication date: 1 November 2002
An escalating situation in one of Hanover Housing Association's extra Care schemes resulted in an abuse enquiry. This article sketches the situation and the action taken. Two key points emerge: in some circumstances, social services departments may opt not to get involved in situations of alleged elder abuse; and use of the term ‘abuse’ may sometimes be counterproductive. Names have been changed to protect identities.
