Information for the elderly

Violence against the elderly in close personal relations affects both genders and occurs in all social strata of society. Violence against the elderly not only takes the form of physical violence, but also the form of psychological violence or threats.

According to numbers from the National Competency Centre on Violence and Traumatic Stress, somewhere between seven and nine percent of elderly persons living at home are exposed to violence or abuse.

Do you experience violence or know someone who does?

If so, contact Trondheim Crisis Centre by telephone at 73 52 34 20.

You can also contact TryggEst by telephone at (+47) 47 70 88 88. Professionals staff the line from 9:00am-3:00pm, weekdays. From TryggEst, you can receive help and advice.

Do I myself experience violence?

Do you find that someone close to you makes you feel afraid, speaks condescendingly to you, is threating, is controlling or wants you to do things that you yourself do not want to do? Are you pushed, is your hair pulled, are you kicked or are things thrown at you? It can be very difficult to talk to others about what one experiences. There are many kinds of violence and not all violence is visible.

Do you feel ashamed or guilty? Be aware that this is a normal consequence of exposure to violence. The person who bears responsibility for violence is always the person who perpetrates it against another.

You can contact us even if you are uncertain as to whether or not you experience violence. You can also choose to remain anonymous in your contact with us.
