It has been estimated that by the year 2020 there will be as many senior citizens in Ontario as there are youth. The dramatic growth of our seniors population is unparalleled at any time in our history.
Increasingly, our seniors are victims of crime.
The partnership between Seniors and Crime Stoppers provides the community with a pro-active program to assist the police in solving these crimes and contributing to an improved quality of life for the seniors of our community.
Elder Abuse is described as any action or inaction by any person who causes harm or threatens to cause harm to an older adult. Click here for more information about Elder Abuse.
