On June 13, 2022, the CORE Elder Abuse Group presented on a conversational approach to address abuse and neglect of older adults called "It's Not Right for Neighbours, Friends and Families.

The event focused on growing the conversation on how to support, neighbours, friends and families, and service providers who suspect or know an older adult is being abused. These questions were discussed and answered during the event: 

  • What is the next step?
  • What does a conversation look like?
  • What do you do if an older adult will not discuss the situation
  • What do you do when someone discloses? 
  • How do service providers support people who suspect someone they know is being abused?
