SAIL is a safe place for older adults, and those who care about them, to talk about abuse or mistreatment as well as information and support about issues that impact older adults.
SAIL intake workers are trained to provide a listening, non-judgmental and supportive ear and provide resources, referrals and support. Callers who are age 50+ and are victims of abuse or family and sexual violence, and who need practical and emotional support may be referred to our Victim Services Program for information, support and referrals to services in the community.
The SAIL line less busy in the evenings and on weekends but you are welcome to call anytime.
Language interpretation is available Monday through Friday, 9am to 4pm.
