Abuse of older women

When considering ending abuse against women, you need to consider the lack of appropariate accomodation and support for older women seeking to leave abusive relationships that they may have endured for their lifetimes, older women have other issues that may prevent them from leaving, health and physical issues, the person abusing them may also be their carer, or they are suffering financial abuse from family, if the are homeowners, they may expected to meet the cost of the accomodation etc, but may have no access to funds , refuge settings are often aimed at younger women and childern and there is a shortage of age appropariate services/accomodation that can meet the needs of older women.
