Services for Seniors

Quite often the abuse that seniors of both sexes experience will be financial or emotional abuse rather than sexual or physical. Whatever the situation is, support is available through our counselor and/or victim services. Websites and Phone Numbers are listed here for support to seniors
These websites have information on government resources, links to the BC Seniors Guide, Service Canada, BC Elders Guide (for first nations seniors) and Canada Benefits. The first address covers information that is specific to abuse.
SAIL for Seniors Abuse and Information Line is a safe place for older adults, and those who care about them to talk to someone about situations where they feel they are being abused or mistreated.
