The Seniors’ Safety Program addresses the safety concerns of seniors by promoting education and awareness about senior abuse prevention, crime prevention, and safety and health issues. The program enhances communication between seniors and the police by providing information, educational sessions, and referral services to seniors through direct contact with the Seniors’ Safety Coordinator.
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, or at a convenient location within the community.
The Seniors’ Safety Program is a community- based program that is operated and managed by a non-profit organization or municipality. There are no age requirements or restrictions for participation in the program, and all referrals are welcome.
