Source: Terra Nova Films
This video explores the issues of family abuse against an older adult very personally from the point of view of five different victims. Their candor in telling about their situation gives the viewer insight into the ambivalent feeling of older abuse victims as they try to find resolution to their pain. In the context of their struggle we also see the various interventions that can be used to help stop the abuse, including counseling, shelters, supportive services and legal action.
