cover grandmother spirit project"This resource book is intended to help raise awareness of issues of senior abuse in the lives of senior Aboriginal women, their families and communities. It is meant to help promote the safety and well-being of our seniors and Elders, both women and men, and to honour them as they would be traditionally. Developing a safe community for our Grandmothers and Grandfathers requires the efforts of all community members, from our little ones to the Old ones. We all play a role in ending senior abuse and making our communities safe, for this generation and for generations to come."

All of the materials developed from the Grandmother Spirit project are grounded in the knowledge shared by the Grandmothers and the project Advisory Committee. For more information on the project, go to www.nwac.ca or contact the Native Women’s Association of Canada at 1-800-461-4043.

BC CRN Toolkit"The Community Response Network Tool Kit was first published in the Fall of 2001; that version of the Tool Kit may be found under "Older Documents". The Tool Kit was republished in 2015.This Tool Kit is comprised of eight chapters; it can be read from beginning to end, and we hope you will read all of it at some point, but it can also be read in any way that meets your needs. The first 3 chapters, though, are very important and will lay the foundation for a healthy start. This is an update of the original Community Response Network Toolkit published in the 1990s by the Public Guardian and Trustee of BC. Since that time, we have learned and developed a great deal of information that may be helpful to you in your CRN work. The original CRN Toolkit was a much lengthier document. We have reduced the content but have provided links throughout for people to seek further detail on a number of topics. If you want more information, click on the embedded links. Use them or explore the BC CRN website or other sources for what you need."

"This guidebook is the culmination of a twelve month project by the BC Centre for Elder Advocacy and Support (BCCEAS). The Building Community Bridges: Outreach to Older Women Project was funded by the 2011 Domestic Violence Prevention Response Fund of the Victim Service & Crime Prevention Division, Ministry of Justice, Province of British Columbia. The project was designed to address an unmet need by facilitating the development of support systems for older adult women who may be victims of domestic violence and other forms of abuse. Older adults who have experienced domestic violence and abuse are often isolated and unwilling to disclose abuse to professionals or their peers. The aim of the project was to connect older adult women with their peers in a comfortable and familiar environment in order to break down social isolation and increase the likelihood that they would be able to access the justice system."
