Auckland Elder Abuse Response Service (EARS) - Asian and South Asian Services


About this resource

The Auckland Elder Abuse Response Service (a collective of Age Concern Counties Manukau, Age Concern Auckland, Age Concern North Shore, Vaka Tautua and Shanti Niwas), covers the Auckland region, working collaboratively to assist older Asian and Pacific people who have been referred to our service. 

The Elder Abuse Response Service (EARS) aims to improve the quality of life of older people in abusive situations and to prevent abuse by providing information, education programmes, advocacy and support. If your are concerned about elder abuse, whether you are an older person yourself, a family member, friend, neighbor or professional, you can contact our Elder Abuse Responsive Service team for free and confidential advice. Our qualified EARS Social Workers have a wide knowledge of the needs of older people and their carers and they work closely with relevant organisations. They are available to talk with groups to help promote public awareness. Seminars and presentations on elder abuse and neglect prevention can also be arranged. Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean and South Asian social workers available
