The 5 examples I will be writing about include disability, racism, gender, age and religion. Discrimination against someone's age happens in many different environments, for example, in some nursing homes, the elderly with dementia are treated very poorly and as if they are nothing. This has been seen in television programme's such as "Panorama undercover elderly care" In this programme an elderly woman was bathed and put to bed, however she was also beaten by care workers and man-handled. When her family came to see her and questioned why bruises were forming they said it's because of the aspirin. This affects the client because she will not feel safe in a place that she calls home and will always feel paranoid because of the constant physical and verbal abuse which can make the client become depressed.

This was also brought up in the pre-elections when David Cameron visited Mumsnet headquarters and had an online chat with parents, where he was forced to admit to not knowing how much the NHS spends on these special incontinence nappies. On Wednesday 19th January 2011 Riven received a letter stating that there is no more help available. A very tired and unhappy mother had to make a big decision to send her daughter in to a residential care home where she would receive better care.
