    Where shall it all end, I ask ? What on EARTH was wrong with ‘vulnerable adult’ ?? Now, we must learn to say ‘adult at risk’ because ‘vulnerable’ stigmatises. ‘Handicap’ stigmatised, ‘vulnerable’ stigmatises, how long before ‘adult at risk’ is declared a stigma ? Pa.. bloomin’… thetic ! Let’s get back to plain English – handicap, for that’s what it is.
    Kind regards, Peter
