How to Establish Specialized Refuge and Support Programs for Older Abused Women"This manual includes information and tools for existing shelter services for abused women and their children who want to provide age appropriate services for older women victims of violence within their family setting. This material is drawn from the experiences and results of pilot testing a new model of services to support older abused women. The pilot tested over a three year period in three British Columbia and one Yukon location ending March 2005. It is described in more detail in an evaluative final report on the project, Silent and Invisible: What’s Age Got To Do With It? (Hightower, Smith and Hightower 2005)1."
