Addressing Elder Abuse in Alberta: A Strategy for Collective Action
The strategy provides the overall context for how the government works with other governments, the private and non-profit sectors, communities, families and individuals to meet the needs of seniors in effective and sustainable ways to address elder abuse. The Strategy is structured around four goals: improved awareness, skilled services providers, coordinated community response and protective laws and legislation.
Our speakers from Alberta Seniors & Housing and Alberta Health will present a webinar for managers. The presentation will answer these questions:What is the difference between elder abuse and abuse in publicly funded housing? What does it look like?
What is your role in addressing abuse concerns?
What are the steps you can take?
Who can help – what are the community resources and supports?
