Eliminating Senior Abuse
BC Coalition to Eliminate Abuse of Seniors
Seniors can be particularly vulnerable members of our society. BC Coalition to End Senior Abuse is helping empower seniors by giving them the tools to protect themselves against physical, verbal and financial abuse.
See how Doreen Young, a senior citizen living in the West End of Vancouver, who recently ran into some legal disputes with her building manager, has taken action. “Sometimes you want to give up, you get so depressed, and you just feel like you’re all alone” she says.
Vancouver Foundation provided a grant to the Lower Mainland Multicultural Community Outreach Project that continues to raise awareness about seniors’ rights and the available supports and resources.
