I and my sister look after dad in his home. We each take it in turns to move into dads house for 3 months at a time so he has 24 hour care. Dad has been newly diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Dad is very well looked after, but i can't get it out of my head how a high rate of elderly vulnerable individuals can be so cruelly abused physically, financially or mentally or just totally neglected in so called "care" homes. It makes my stomach churn. We're so lucky we can look after our dad in this way. I feel so very sad for others who are not in this position to do so.

an elderly couple has been defrauded, bullied, terrorised and harassed by their nephew who has taken everything from them and is now trying to force them into a situation where they walk away from the family farm which they bought for the benefit of all but he has systematically, deceitfully and physically taken it from them, he has done this through shear greed and his lust for control, so that he can have full legal control and benefit from the substantial cash income. All of the authorities are absolutely useless and just stand by doing nothing waiting for the demise of this couple who have never harmed a fly.

I'm signing this petition to put a stop to elderly and vulnerable people being defrauded and bullied by people close to them. It's a heinous crime and Fyzah is a good friend of mine and she is going through hell trying to see her own Mother who has dementia and cannot make her own decisions and is being prevented from this.

My mother of 83 is being abused psychological and is neglected by the brother and I cannot get docial services or the police to help. They seem ignorant and totally unable to recognise abuse. My heart is broken

The system needs to change, too many people are getting hurt and the abusers are going unpunished.
