Senior Safety Programs

A Seniors Safety Program is a community-based program that is operated and managed by a nonprofit organization. It addresses the safety concerns of seniors by:

  • promoting awareness about senior abuse prevention, crime prevention, and safety and health issues
  • enhancing communication between seniors and the police
  • providing information, educational sessions, and referral services to seniors
  • offering direct contact with seniors through the seniors safety coordinator

The day-to-day operation of the program is the job of the seniors safety coordinator usually a paid staff person, but sometimes a volunteer. The coordinator works in close partnership with local police agencies and a large network of local, provincial, and federal partnering agencies. Typically, services are offered to seniors throughout a county in their own homes and at other locations within the community.
