Client: Mentorschap West-Brabant
Duration: 15 min
An estimated 200,000 elderly are abused every year. Elderly abuse can be physical and psychological abuse, neglection or financial exploitation. Elderly need to feel safe and be safe. The mentors help people who struggle to keep control over their own lives. The court appoints the mentors to make decisions for these vulnerable people, about their care, nursing and treatment. The film shows a practical example of elderly abuse and shows that it can be stopped properly. The film is used for educational purposes among professional healthcare employees.
For this film about elderly abuse several institutions cooperated, such as healthcare institutions, the police, the ABN bank and even the Court of Bergen op Zoom has participated.
