Who might be an abuser?

An abuser could be anyone.

It can be someone you know or someone you work with.

It could be staff who care for you, like the nurse or care assistant in your home.

It could be your family or friends.

It could be a stranger or a paid carer.

Sometimes abuse could happen because of poor training or because the person does not know how to care for someone properly. This is still abuse.

Sometimes this can happen because a carer is not able to care anymore. This is still abuse.
