Elder Abuse and Neglect in Asia

  • Elsie YanEmail author
  • Gracy Fang


The Asian population is aging rapidly. Contrary to the beliefs that older Asians enjoy prestige and power in their family, increasing evidence suggested that the younger generations are less adhere to the traditional Confucian principles of filial piety. The rapid socioeconomic development and the resulting change in demographics and gender roles have further increased the vulnerability of older Asians for falling victims of elder abuse. This chapter examines the changing cultural values in Asia and their implications for elder abuse. The authors highlighted three major areas: (1) new interpretations of filial piety and changing intergenerational relationships, (2) gender roles and patriarchal society, and (3) changing demographics and social structure.
