What is Safeguarding Adults in Care?

Safeguarding Adults in Care refers to the process of protecting vulnerable adults who may be at risk of abuse, neglect, or exploitation while receiving care or support services. It involves identifying and addressing concerns about the safety and well-being of adults who may have care and support needs due to age, disability, illness, or other factors. Safeguarding Adults in Care encompasses various measures, including prevention, early intervention, risk assessment, and support for those affected by abuse or neglect. The aim is to promote dignity, autonomy, and safety for vulnerable adults, ensuring they receive high-quality care and support while preventing harm and safeguarding their rights. Most importantly, there are clear protocols for reporting concerns and a legal obligation for carers to do so.

Why Does Neglect and Abuse Happen with People in Care?

People with care needs are susceptible to neglect and abuse due to their reliance on care and support for essential tasks, creating power imbalances. Physical or cognitive impairments can limit their ability to communicate or report mistreatment, making them more vulnerable. Social isolation further exacerbates this vulnerability, as fewer interactions with others reduces opportunities for intervention.
