Reach out. We will reach back.
Almost 1 in 10 older Canadians have suffered from elder abuse. Abuse can be physical, verbal, emotional, financial, or caused by neglect.
No one needs to put up with abuse.
Victims of abuse are often harmed by people they trust. Many older adults are hesitant to tell anyone that they feel abused, fearing retaliation, or worse, having to leave their home. We can help. Your privacy and confidentiality are assured.
If you or someone you care for is facing abuse, we provide:
- Help in developing a plan to keep safe
- Information and referral to legal, financial, housing and community resources
