Developing a comprehensive understanding of elder abuse prevention in immigrant communities

About

Aging well project
The project

The project seeks to develop a comprehensive classification of risk factors for elder abuse in immigrant communities in order to identify the most relevant strategies to address the risk factors in four immigrant communities (older women, older men, family members, and community leaders) in the Greater Toronto Area.

Researchers

We are a team of researchers from the Greater Toronto Area who have come together to combine our knowledge, passion, and networks to address elder abuse.

Partner organizations

Throughout the project, we will collaborate with various organizations that provide services to the four communities. These partnerships will support our efforts in addressing elder abuse among older immigrants living in the Greater Toronto Area.
