• Preventing Elder Abuse Among Seniors

    Rebecca Topping | October 3, 2018

    The Peel Elder Abuse Prevention Network (PEAPN) identified a need within its community for a resource to address scams affecting immigrant seniors. While this isn't an Albertan video, it's a need that we see here just as much as they do in Ontario. 

    Through a grant provided by New Horizons, the Network produced a video, which tackles those issues. The video itself was created by an older adult and member of PEAPN, Ken Stern, and the actors are senior volunteers from Peel Region.To get a better understanding of the issues affecting seniors in Peel, over 400 older adults were interviewed, and those stories are what translate into the vignettes you will be seeing.
