Norma’s Project: Sexual Assault in Healthcare Elderly Women

Norma’s Project: Sexual Assault in Healthcare Elderly Women

‘I hope and expect this report will be read by policy makers, aged care providers, and everyone who has an older female relative receiving care.  Sexual violence against any woman is intolerable, but sexual violence against frail, very old women, be they living in residential aged care, or receiving care at home,constitute the worst cases of this abominable crime. Frail older women, often suffering dementia, have no defences against the perpetrators. Sometimes, the perpetrators are in fact the very people charged with care of the older women.’

‘At least 50% of all deaths in Australia each year are clinically expected because of advanced disease. In their last year of life, Australians with advanced disease will average eight hospital admissions and incur a 60%–70% chance of dying in hospital. More than half may be denied adequate opportunity to discuss end-of-life care wishes or have them fully enacted.’
