ABSTRACT
This work, fragment of a wide research about domestic violence against aged people in Salvador city - Bahia, had the objective to present and analyze the practice of family violence against two aged people attended by the Interdisciplinary Home Attendance (PADI) of the Federal University of Bahia Medical Service (SMURB). This is a qualitative, exploratory and descriptive study, of case study type. The data were obtained after the history of the aged people, collected during the home visits. From the talks were extracted three categories: physical aggression; material-financial abuse and negligence in the human and environmental care, evaluated through the analysis of the content of Bardin, and according to the literature about the theme. This situation led to infer that besides the social, economic, political and cultural factors, the lack of an affective human process added to co-responsibility, to the compromise and to the inter-generation solidarity, may neglect or deprive the aged people from the right of being cared in the family. Is evident a need of formation and training of the health professionals able to act to preview and effectively intervene with aged people victims of domestic violence and their relatives, with the aim of promoting the health, guaranteeing to the aged people fundamental rights contained in the Law.
