Comment dépister les abus matériels et financiers envers les personnes âgées ?

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2013, vol. 9, no. 405, p. 2061-5
Abstract Elder abuse and in particular material and financial exploitation involving the misappropriation of the older person's money or property is common but rarely identified or managed in clinical practice. It has a direct impact on quality of life, health and social status. Our aim is to assist clinicians by summarizing this frequently unrecognized problem. We discuss risk factors, alerting signs, clinical manifestations, and specific questions that can be used for screening purposes as well as intervention strategies preferably in the context of a multidisciplinary team.
