Discussion This chapter has pointed to the potential for alcohol and substance misuse to be risk factors for elder abuse among older people and those providing them with care and support. Elder abuse takes many forms and health and care professionals working with older people need to be aware of their own roles and responsibilities in reducing the risks of this harm and ensuring that older people have their rights to live safely and without great fear of being mistreated or neglected. This requires professionals to be vigilant, have a high index of suspicion and to provide sufficient professional ‘space’ to older people to build up trust, and for them to confide when things are going wrong.
