Alberta’s government is seeking input from the public to update the definition of elder abuse.
A new public survey is now open and Albertans are invited to provide input into the new definition of elder abuse. The revised definition will be used to inform legislation, policies and programs to better meet the needs of seniors and support organizations. As the foundation for this work and a new provincial strategy to prevent and fight elder abuse, a clear and specific definition will improve the safety and well-being of seniors across the province.
Stakeholders and the public can share their thoughts on the enhanced definition through the survey @ http://www.alberta.ca/elder-abuse-prevention-engagement.aspx. The survey is open until Oct. 25.
