New phone line and email address to help report elder abuse

Interior Health has launched a new, confidential toll-free number to report the mistreatment of older adults.
“Research shows that seniors are the most likely to suffer physical, psychological or financial abuse or neglect from a family member,” says Minister of Health Terry Lake. “World Elder Abuse Awareness Day reminds us to treat everyone, at any age, with dignity and respect. There is no excuse for abuse.”

Anyone within Interior Health who has concerns regarding elder abuse can call 1-844-870-4754 to be connected with an Interior Health staff member who is trained to respond to such situations. The phone number and corresponding email address ihadultguardianship@interiorhealth.ca were launched in May this year. (Always call 9-1-1 if the situation is an emergency and you require immediate help.)
