  • This 3-year project aims at developing a police practice model to counter elder abuse.
  • Police officers are called to intervene in different situations of abuse, at home or in nursing homes. The detection, the assessment of risk factors and elder abuse are not done in a systematic manner. Although they already identify situations of abuse, the majority of first responders (police and firefighters) have no standardized approach to detect situations of vulnerable seniors.
  • Marie Beaulieu et Michelle Côté will introduce the  project IPAM - Police Intervention to Counter Elder Abuse: Developing and Implementing a Practice Model, the results of the pilot project, as well as the next steps until completion in June 2016.

The presentation will be in French.
PowerPoint slides and the Q&A session will be available in English and French.

Who should attend 
Individuals and organizations across Canada involved in the protection and wellbeing of elders and in the prevention of elder abuse:

  • law enforcement,
  • victim assistance services,
  • social services,
  • health care services,
  • senior serving organizations etc
