Over the past few months, the Chair has disseminated the results of its participatory research with the CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS, on psychological mistreatment and material and financial mistreatment of older adults with disabilities. This project funded by the OPHQ has captured interest on the national and international scene and several requests have been made to have access to the documentation in English.
We are therefore pleased to share today the English version of the executive summary of this research, which aimed to review the pool of knowledge based on the scientific literature, describe situations of mistreatment and services trajectory in the light of statements from older adults with disabilities, and elaborate recommendations. We are convinced that this English version will help to continue the conversation and will encourage actions for this group of older adults who are so often “invisible”.
