Elder Abuse Awareness Program
Over 90% of all reported abuse of seniors is committed by someone in their own family.
The “See Something, Say Something” Elder Abuse Awareness program works with multiple partnerships including the City of Surrey, Seniors First BC, BC Association of Community Response Networks and the Police. This program is designed to provide seniors with a safe and anonymous method to report what they know about suspected criminal or abusive behaviour towards another elder or themselves. The program covers important topics and goes into great depth covering issues such as:
- Physical abuse
- Emotional or psychological abuse
- Financial abuse
Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers wants seniors to know that they are not alone and have resources available to them. Crime Stoppers provides an outlet to report anything that they deem to be criminal or suspicious.
With Metro Vancouver being home to many new immigrant families, Crime Stoppers does not want language barriers to prevent seniors from reporting a crime. The program offers services in over 115 different languages and operates 24 hours 7 days a week.
