e-Learning : Elder Abuse Awareness and Prevention A Closer Look

Presented by
Momiji / JSS / Yee Hong Centre

Wed. Jun 14, 2023, 3:00 – 4:00 pm (English)

1 hour online session on Zoom to learn about elder abuse will be co-provided by Momiji Health Care Society and Japanese Social Services (JSS), joined by Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care. *Held in English

What is this session about?

Elder abuse is a serious and growing injustice in our community. The magnitude and extent of the elder abuse cases occurring in Ontario is not fully known, due in part to limited data collection and underreported cases. This presentation provides participants an opportunity to gain a better understanding of what constitutes elder abuse, how to recognize the risk factors and signs of abuse, and how to report it and how best to support an older adult experiencing or at-risk of abuse.
