Depression and elder abuse and neglect among a community-dwelling Chinese elderly population



Depression and elder abuse and neglect among a community-dwelling Chinese elderly population



Journal of Elder Abuse & Neglect 20(1): 25-41



Our recent survey of an elderly cohort in mainland China suggests that elder abuse and neglect are common. Unfortunately, there is minimal knowledge about the risk factors for elder abuse and neglect among this population. We aimed to examine depression as a risk factor for elder abuse and neglect among Chinese elderly. A cross-sectional study was performed in a major urban medical center in NanJing, China.
