This initiative “seeks to engage older Canadians and their communities in making their communities better, healthier and safer places for seniors to live and thrive”. This overlaps with addressing the risk factors for elder abuse. Many of the same things that build communities which are safer, healthier places for all people will reduce isolation of older adults and reduce the risk of elder abuse.
Canada’s senior population is growing. This makes it more important than ever to support the health and wellbeing of older Canadians. This way, seniors can lead healthy and active lives and stay involved in their communities. Making communities “Age-Friendly” is one of the best ways to do this.
