|Abstract||Researchers are beginning to examine issues of age, gender, & abuse, but empirical data is lacking. The purpose of this exploratory study was to identify contextual variables, with a particular focus on gender, that may be related to the abuse of older adults. Abuse cases, as described by 121 professionals who worked with seniors, were analyzed both quantitatively & qualitatively. Three themes emerged through analysis of the qualitative data that provided insight into factors contributing to the abuse of older adults: characteristics of the abused senior, characteristics of the abuser, & the living environment. Results showed linkages between abuse of older adults, gender, & family. Tables, References. Adapted from the source document.
