On June 15th, CMHA Waterloo Wellington joins organizations around the world in recognizing World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
It is estimated that 10% of older adults will experience one or more forms of abuse at some point during their senior years. We are encouraging everyone to show the world you care about ending elder abuse by wearing something purple. Together, we have the power to prevent elder abuse.

The Seniors at Risk Community Response Network represents a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach across health/social services, legal and police services as well as the informal seniors support network. Our resources include:
The Guelph Wellington Gatekeeper Project educates local community members to be change-makers by helping to identify vulnerable and at-risk older adults.
