The EAPU Helpline: investigation of five years of call data (2015)
This report investigates five years' worth of Helpline data. The report finds consistencies over time for age and gender although it suggests that elder abuse in older age groups may not be as gendered as spousal abuse. Drilling down into abuse types and relationships indicates that elder abuse is a different construct to spousal abuse. A change in the patterns of two abuse types over time reveals that sons and daughters are becoming more alike in their patterns of abuse. Click here for the full report.
