An Elder Abuse Awareness and Financial Literacy Workshop Program for Older Adults.
he BC Centre for Elder Advocacy and Support (BCCEAS) developed a workshop toolkit on elder abuse prevention through a three-year project that was funded by the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada under the New Horizons for Seniors Program. The workshop program utilizes the peer-to-peer model, with trained older adults delivering information on elder abuse prevention and financial literacy to their peers, Since 2011, BCCEAS has delivered over 500 workshops using this model to almost 5,000 older adults, in addition to training community groups to establish their own seniors reaching out to seniors program, in communities across BC.
