 Conference 2015:  “Fresh Perspectives on Elder Abuse”

Fresh Perspectives on Elder Abuse

Our recent conference “Fresh Perspectives on Elder Abuse” was a great success and a wonderful learning opportunity for anyone concerned about elder abuse. Participants were a diverse cross-section of community members, including Health and Social Service professionals, front-line caregivers and service providers, seniors from the community, volunteers and family caregivers. It was also fun to visit the exhibits to share, network and learn about our community resources!Group
