About Abuse in Vulnerable Populations

Almost 1 in 10 older Canadians have suffered from 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 seniors 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:

  • Counselling
  • Help in developing a plan to keep safe
  • Information and referral to legal, financial, housing and community resources

Please be aware that it may take time for you to be connected with a social worker. If you would like more immediate (non-emergency) assistance, please call the Toronto Seniors Helpline: 416-217-2077.

Service Area

Our service area spans Major Mackenzie Dr. N to St Clair Ave., and Jane St. to the Don Valley Parkway.
