3.5 Providing Safety, Support, and Help

Safeguarding policies and protective services need to be set up in all healthcare facilities and departments to provide safety for victims of vulnerable adult abuse or neglect.

Adequate training for healthcare professionals and all related employees can ensure that signs of abuse are not ignored and that victims are identified and provided help by collecting efforts of the healthcare departments, law enforcement, and supportive services.

Beyond healthcare employee training, awareness and education on the matter need to be provided to the general public so that more abuse victims can be recognized and provided help.

Vulnerable adult abuse victims are often fearful of their lives and terrified of losing their homes, financial support, and care, which calls for dedicated programs catered towards providing these services on an immediate basis to the victims who need safety away from their abusers.
