Its Not Right - Neighbours, Friends and Families for Older Adults

Abuse of older adults is a serious problem in Canada. Do you know an older adult you think may be experiencing abuse or neglect? It is often neighbours, friends and family members who first see the warning signs but don’t know what to do about it.

It’s Not Right! Neighbours, Friends and Families for Older Adults has been developed to educate and engage all Canadians on the issue of older adult abuse and neglect. We want to teach everyone to recognize warning signs and risk factors and to learn small practical steps that can add up to a big difference in someone’s life and in our communities. There are little things that everyone can do to help. YOU are powerful - most people just don’t know it! Together we can create the society where we feel respected, valued, safe and supported throughout our lives.  Join us!
