The BC Centre for Elder Advocacy and Support (BCCEAS) developed a workshop toolkit on elder abuse prevention through a three-year project that was funded by the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada under the New Horizons for Seniors Program. The workshop program utilizes the peer-to-peer model, with trained older adults delivering information on elder abuse prevention and financial literacy to their peers. Since 2011, BCCEAS has delivered over 500 workshops using this model to almost 5,000 older adults, in addition to training community groups to establish their own seniors reaching out to seniors program, in communities across BC. 

The webinar will share learnings on the strategies of a peer-to-peer educational model on elder abuse prevention,  through examination of the recruitment and training of volunteers, program delivery, evaluation and community networking, and use this knowledge to help organizations establish a volunteer-driven elder abuse prevention program in their communities.

The following resource is part of the Family Violence Initiative, funded by the Department of Justice Canada. Find similar tools by searching for the FVIF tag or consult the list of available resources.

  • This 3-year project aims at developing a police practice model to counter elder abuse.
  • Police officers are called to intervene in different situations of abuse, at home or in nursing homes. The detection, the assessment of risk factors and elder abuse are not done in a systematic manner. Although they already identify situations of abuse, the majority of first responders (police and firefighters) have no standardized approach to detect situations of vulnerable seniors.
  • Marie Beaulieu et Michelle Côté will introduce the  project IPAM - Police Intervention to Counter Elder Abuse: Developing and Implementing a Practice Model, the results of the pilot project, as well as the next steps until completion in June 2016.

The presentation will be in French.
PowerPoint slides and the Q&A session will be available in English and French.
