Safeguarding Your Vulnerable Clients - A ‘How To’ Guide
It is inevitable that professionals who advise vulnerable clients, such as the elderly or disabled, will come across situations where they believe the client may be at risk of abuse or neglect including cases where the client is refusing care and self-neglecting.
Safeguarding policies overarch many organisations and it can be confusing as to who to contact and understand what action can be taken.
