Abuse is not just about physical attack.
“Elder abuse” refers to the violence, mistreatment or neglect that an older adult may experience at the hands of a caregiver, spouse, family member, service provider, or any other individual.
Berwick Comox Valley is hosting an informative session with RCMP Victim Services to learn how to identify elder abuse, including neglect, bullying, economic or financial abuse, violation of rights, over or under medication, and confinement, among others.
Find out how to protect yourself and the older adults in your circle, and what to do if you suspect someone is being subjected to elder abuse.
The session goes Monday, March 16 at 2 p.m. in the Community Room at Berwick Comox Valley.
Session is free, but seating is limited so call to reserve your seat today at 250-890-2338.
