Information from Ramani’s blog was quoted in US White House Policy Briefing on Ageing and Elders’ Abuse in 2015.
Yet another is on Family values.
This makes me work harder to check and cross check what I write.
I am also happy that eight doctorates have been obtained, most of them in France by taking references from Ramani’s blog.
I would request readers to point out inaccuracies in this blog.
Needless to say that such information must be authentic and contain authentic sources/Links.
I do not consider my self as infallible nor am I quite learned.
I explore with an open mind.
My aim is to present facts from authentic sources for the benefit of the common man.
I try to avoid jargon.
I try to present World/Indian History as it happened and without bias.
Especially Indian History which is taught is mere mis/disinformation.
Lead Me from Untruth to Truth.
Regards to my Readers.
‘This study was done over the phone and screened out for dramanan50.files.wordpress.com/…/…0636546_n.jpgementia. Since we know that dementia increases the likelihood of abuse and that isolation is a key risk factor in abuse, these statistics are likely understated. In fact, a 2009 study revealed that close to 50% of people with dementia experience some kind of abuse. (Cooper, C, Selwood, A., Blanchard, M., Walker, Z., Blizard, R., & Livingston, G. (2009) Abuse of people with dementia by family carers: Representative cross sectional survey. British Medical Journal, 338, b155) Any other medical condition with a 14% prevalence rate would be considered an epidemic!
It is also critical to highlight that the issue of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation is primarily a family issue and is not limited to nursing homes and home care providers. In fact, over 90% of elder abuse happens at the hands of one’s own family and friends (see https://outofthefog.net/Statistics.html or ramanan50.files.wordpress.com/…/…0636546_n.jpg )
