Elder Abuse Response: We All Have a Role

Posted in Your Best Practices & Community Activities

On April 25, 2013, Calgarys Elder Abuse Response Team (EART) hosted an event called "Elder Abuse Response: We All Have a Role" to honour National Victims of Crime Awareness Week. The event was held to raise awareness about the Elder Abuse Response Team and other resources available in the community. A special emphasis was placed on the role that members of the public can play in recognizing and responding to situations of elder abuse. The digital story "Elder Abuse: The Gatekeepers" was debuted as a call to action for all members of the public to consider their role in elder abuse prevention and response.
