To whom do I report suspected Elder Abuse?
If you suspect that elder abuse is happening you can contact the HSE 1850 24 1850 or find your local Safeguarding and Protection team here and contact them directly.
You can also speak to the nurse manager in the nursing home. Every nursing home should have an individual appointed and trained to handle elder abuse cases.
How do I go about getting an advocate for someone in a nursing home?
Third Age Ireland’s SAGE provides an advocacy service and you can contact them at 01-536 7330/1850-719400 or email them. They will also give you advice if you suspect elder abuse.
You can also contact Age Action's Information Service in confidence on 01-475 6989 from 9am-1pm and 2pm-5pm Monday to Friday.
