The basic human rights of older Canadians are being challenged and undercut every day. It is estimated that 1 in 6 seniors globally experience elder abuse. We, as a country, cannot allow this to continue. Today is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) and BC’s 80+ Community Response Networks (CRN’s) are currently involved in awareness activities to help prevent Elder Abuse!! Let’s join together to celebrate and honour older adults as active, vibrant members of our community!!
