Let’s Talk About Elder Abuse: Protect yourself and others in the community

Two older adults holding hands.

In this social awareness session, the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre’s Elder Abuse Response & Referral Service (EARRS) will share:

  •  How to recognize elder abuse
  •  Common signs and symptoms
  •  Risk factors
  • How to protect yourself and loved ones from elder abuse
  • Why seniors and bystanders are reluctant to report elder abuse incidences
  • Supports and services offered in the community for seniors
  • What you can do to help

EARRS is working to effect positive change when seniors reach out for help or offer help to others.  Seniors, and all who know and work with them, are invited to join this conversation.
