Emotional abuse is any action, verbal or non-verbal, that lessens a person’s sense of identity, dignity and self-worth. Emotional abuse is one of the most prevalent forms of abuse and includes any attempt to demoralize, dehumanize or intimidate older adults.

 ''The South Asian community is the fastest growing visible minority group in Toronto (having grown by 40% since 1996). Studies show that a large percentage of residents within this community are living in poverty and fall into the low-income category. Given this context, there is a demonstrated need to provide older adults with information about their rights and how best to access services and supports they might need.
