Sexual Abuse is any form of non-consensual physical contact and includes rape, molestation, or any sexual conduct with a person who lacks the mental capacity to exercise consent.

Perpetrators of sexual abuse may be attendants, employees of care facilities, family members [including spouses], or others. Some facility residents assault fellow residents.

Sexual abuse indicators are:

  • Genital or anal pain, irritation, or bleeding
  • Bruises on external genitalia or inner thighs
  • Difficulty walking or sitting
  • Torn, stained, or bloody underclothing
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Inappropriate talking

Behavioural indicators of Sexual Abuse include:

  • Inappropriate, unusual or aggressive sexual behaviour
  • An inappropriate sex-role relationship between the victim and the suspect.

In many cases, the individual we support will show you what the abuser is making them do as they do not understand that the act is inappropriate.
