Elder Abuse - Grow the Conversation

Posted on June 5 2024

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was established in 2006, and is held on June 15th each year. The day is an opportunity to raise awareness of elder abuse and neglect of older adults by sharing information about the facts of elder abuse, the rights of older persons and to promote resources and services to support seniors’ safety and well-being.

Elder Abuse: What is it, what to pay attention to and how to help
June 13 at 10:30 am Drop in Session at Sage 

The Alberta Government estimates that 1 in 10 Albertan seniors may encounter elder abuse. Are you familiar with how to identify and address abuse? This session touches on the issue of elder abuse, emphasizes the significance of understanding available resources in Edmonton, and offers guidance on how to support a friend who is experiencing abuse. While this topic may be sensitive in nature, this workshop will focus on how to provide support.
