GREEN PAPER – National Policy for Senior Citizens

disproportionately susceptible to violence, particularly because of stigma, negative cultural beliefs

and ignorance. They are at increased risk of becoming victims of physical, sexual, psychological, and

emotional abuse, neglect, financial exploitation and chronic poverty. Older women may be particularly

more exposed to these than men. According to the ESSJ (2015) 383 persons in the 65+ age groups

were victims of serious crimes in 2015, where 256 (67.0 per cent) were men and 127 (33.0 per cent)

were women. The gender breakdown is similar to what obtains for all victims of major crimes, where

males accounted for 62.0 per cent and women for 38.0 per cent (Table 24.8, p. 24.5). The UNFPA and

HAI Desk Review (2011) indicated that violent crimes and abuse against older persons occur as

frequently in their own homes as outside the home by strangers.

The 65+ age group accounted for the smallest proportion of perpetrators charged (0.24 per cent) of

major crimes in 2015.

2.5.3 Natural Disasters and Rehabilitation

A 2012 disaster risk reduction study by the University of the West Indies4 identifies the elderly as a

vulnerable group. The first challenge for this group is disruption in healthcare that the elderly often

suffer when a disaster happens. The fact that over 72 per cent report having chronic illness with about

a quarter having some form of disability defines the magnitude of this problem.

The second issue is the non-involvement of the elderly in disaster planning and education. In 2011

HelpAge conducted a disaster needs assessments “across 19 communities in the parishes of: St.

Catherine and Portland and found that more than 60% of the respondents (the elderly) indicated that

they had received no formal disaster education or training, and had no knowledge of disaster response

plans for their communities” (Fox, 2011, p. 49).
