"I am Mary and I am a 91 year old woman who now lives in a care home. Some of the staff at the care home do not like me and make me wait when I ask for help. When my daughter came to visit, I told her how the staff would ignore me. She rang the local Safeguarding Adults Team who arranged an investigation of the care home staff. The staff who mistreated me have since left."
"My name is Peter and I have a mental health problem. My problem means that I need people to help me. Someone I thought was my friend has been taking my money so I called the local Safeguarding Adults Team. They were able to arrange for the Police and a social worker to stop this so no one takes my money now."
"I am Ellie. I am disabled and need help daily. One of my care workers slapped and pushed me. It was very frightening. Someone told me to ring the local Safeguarding Adults Team. I have new care workers now who are very kind to me."
"I am Wendy. I am a 50 year old woman with learning disabilities. One of the men at the Day Centre keeps touching me and I don't like it. No one does anything about it. I told my brother who rang the local Safeguarding Adults Team. This man has gone now. I look forward to going to the Day Centre now."
