It’s Not Right

Neighbours, friends and family members can make a difference in the life of an older adult who may be experiencing abuse or neglect. Even your small actions can make a big difference.

Attend a free information session in your community and learn how…

  • Attitudes about older adults can lead to abuse
  • As a neighbor, friend or family member, know how to respond safely and supportively to someone experiencing abuse
  • Learn “See it, Name it, and Check it” – an easy way to recognize and do something about abuse
