Elder Abuse Prevention

Wednesday, December 07, 2016

The Victoria Community Response Network (VCRN) has decided to
increase outreach and education sessions for community local groups working with seniors to prevent
elder abuse and neglect in Victoria, BC. The VCRN goal is to facilitate free workshops and information
sessions regarding the resources available in
the local community (i.e., abuse, neglect and self-neglect
awareness/prevention). We will hold an
information session for the leaders of seniors’
programs on Wednesday Dec 07th from 10-11:30am at the Central
Library in Victoria. Parking: below the Central Library and on View
Street Parkade (the first hour is free).

Please join us
for this dynamic event!

We invite you,
our local community groups to learn about the warning signs of abuse of older
adults and how to respond safely.

We will
discuss:

  •  Signs and risk factors of abuse
  •  True to life scenarios and videos to stimulate your awareness
  •  Local and
    provincial resources to prevent elder abuse

We look forward to seeing members of the Jewish community
represented at this important event. 

Questions and
RSVP to Lycia by November 18th at lyciar@yahoo.com
