Any older adult can become a victim of elder abuse, regardless of gender, sexual identity, race, ethnicity, income, or education. According to the National Prevalence Study on Mistreatment of Older Canadians, 8.9 per cent of older adults in Alberta experience one or more forms of abuse. One of the best ways to address elder abuse is through a collaborative community of practice.
