3.6 Effective Treatment Options

Treatment options for vulnerable adults vary depending on individual cases. For example, a vulnerable adult who has been violently abused may require immediate medical attention. In comparison, a vulnerable adult who has been abused financially may not require medical attention.

Outside of healthcare, the concerned authorities need to ensure the safety of vulnerable adults. The vulnerable adults need to be empowered, encouraged to exercise their autonomy, and make as many of their own decisions as possible.

Authorities need to perform an adequate risk assessment and prevent any repetition of abuse. There also needs to be an extensive effort toward promoting the well-being of vulnerable adults in the form of care packages, temporary or permanent residency, etc.
