Elder Abuse: What is it? How to deal with it?

Date: Saturday, January 11, 2020

Timings: 10:00am to 12:00pm 

Location: The workshop will be on Elder Abuse for St. Elizabeth’s Group at St. Joseph’s Parish in Langley 

This 90-minute workshop addresses the correlation between social isolation and abuse of older adults, types of abuse and people involved, and strategies to deal with abuse. We discuss the importance of staying connected to others through brainstorming community resources, and viewing a short video depicting a fictional story of social isolation and elder abuse.

The following two financial literacy workshops provide older adults with information to protect their finances, to recognize and respond to financial abuse, and to access resources for further assistance.  Each workshop is 60 or 90 minutes in duration, and includes a PowerPoint presentation and group discussions.
