SAIF's Elder Abuse Response & Awareness
Awareness, prevention & a coordinated response to Elder Abuse (defined as those over 50 years of age) is a cornerstone of our program.
We accept calls & emails from the general public about elder abuse. Intakes are conducted weekly & we do our best to provide appropriate resources as needed.
Our awareness program educates the community, business & organizations in understanding the signs of elder abuse, how to help & what resources are available for those in their community on this issue.
We encourage the general public to report elder abuse whenever they suspect it's occurring. You can report it to us via email or phone. You can also contact your local RCMP detachment, call 211, or speak to your health care professional.
To inquire about our Elder Abuse program, please contact our Elder Abuse Response Coordinator.
