Older people are sexually assaulted in aged care homes and their own homes, an issue that is made worse by a lack of education for aged care professionals that would help them prevent it.
We have partnered with Celebrate Ageing and the Older Women’s Network New South Wales on a collaborative project to build the skills and capacity of residential aged care service providers to better respond to and prevent the sexual assault of older people living in aged care homes.
Ready to Listen is the first Australian Government-funded resource of its kind in Australia. It is the start of an ongoing process of acknowledging older people are sexually assaulted, developing prevention strategies and holding perpetrators accountable.
