Alberta Elder Abuse Awareness Council

Elder abuse is any action, or lack of action, that endangers a senior’s health or wellness. It can take many forms, any senior can be victimized, and it does not need to be physical in order to be considered abuse. In fact, emotional and financial abuse are the most frequently seen types of elder abuse in Canada.

Prevention of elder abuse begins with awareness, and FCSS and Community Development is working to raise the profile of this important issue.

The Alberta Elder Abuse Awareness Council is a group of Albertans dedicated to increasing awareness and supporting a community response to elder abuse. Canada’s fastest growing population is over the age of 65 and rapidly becoming vulnerable to abuse that can rob older adults of their well-being and dignity.

  • A province-wide network of professionals
  • Representing communities across Alberta
  • Promoting the well-being and security of older adults
  • Working to increase community awareness
  • Developing resources to address and educate about elder abuse
