dc.description.abstract An old-age home that delivered community outreach services to older people in the community investigated the housing circumstances and financial position of the participants. It was found that the elderly receiving services had very little to spend on themselves and a large percentage of participants could not account for their monthly expenditure. Financial problems were evident as there was no food in the home, the home smelt of urine and dirty laundry and bed linen were evident. The risk of financial abuse is highlighted.
