Community Awareness and Response

From the Family Violence Prevention Unit, Health Canada. "This introductory guide to community approaches provides information and an approach that communities can use to develop policies, programs and services that support older adults. It raises questions about perceptions of the issue and is intended to stimulate discussion and action at the community level. Community Awareness and Response: Abuse and Neglect of Older Adults aims to create an environment where older adults feel confident to speak out about abuse and neglect. The main focus of any community effort to address the issue must be to promote the wellbeing of older adults and strengthen their right to self-determination, respect and dignity. Only then will the problem begin to be solved."
