Let us stop this abuse together.
Together we can identify, prevent and stop cases of elder abuse that are happening every day in our community
Oftentimes when a senior is experiencing abuse there are a number of “warning signs” happening that can signal a potential problem.
The abuse of older adults is everyone’s business. Seniors and community members need to be informed about abuse.
Elder Abuse Prevention (ON) has focused on supporting the implementation of The Ontario Strategy to Combat Elder Abuse.
In 1997 the Long-Term Care Committee of the Simcoe County District Health Council identified the need for a community response protocol to address abuse issues. The Abuse Protocol Steering Committee created a document outlining an intervention model in Simcoe County. Shortly after this committee determined it should focus on seniors and The Simcoe County Elder Abuse Committee was formed.
