There are some studies that indicate that females are more likely to be victims of elder abuse. Other demographic factors that contribute to risk include unmarried status and non-white ethnic origin. Consequently, practitioners will need to become more culturally aware and sensitive to the cultural norms, belief systems, and needs of culturally diverse patients in order to provide culturally relevant services and interventions. In other words, it is inevitable that we talk about cultural competency. There has been a growing interest in the perceptions of elder abuse among ethnic minority populations.
