EAPO is pleased to host this first, in a Series of Webinars that explores the complexities
of Elder Abuse issues, their impacts and barriers to prevention within diverse communities (including SE Asian, European and South American in future sessions). A panel of South Asian community leaders from across Ontario, will join EAPO to share their insights into the nature of growing up and growing older within their communities.

Elder Abuse Prevention Ontario in partnership with the Prevention of Elder Abuse Coalition of Etobicoke and York (PEACE), and the North York Elder Abuse Network (NYEAN) host a Knowledge Exchange Event entitled: Legal Responses to Elder Abuse.
Join us as we learn from our panel of experts: the Peel Regional Police, the Advocacy Centre for the Elderly (ACE) and the Office of the Public Guardian and Trustee (OPGT), who will discuss the law as it pertains to Elder Abuse and share what legal recourse options are available to help prevent and respond appropriately to cases.
Through the presentation of a case study followed by an interactive panel discussion, we will explore with our guest speakers, experts in their respective fields, how they each address an individual’s mental health and ability to make decisions. By unfolding the various pieces of the puzzle in the case study, our panel of experts will show that by working together, we can effectively connect people to the supports the need.

EAPO is pleased to be joined by the Assaulted Women’s Help Line-Seniors Safety Line (SSL) and The Ontario Caregiver Organization (OCO) to host a webinar on ‘Responding to the Safety and Well-being of Caregivers during COVID-19’. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted many family members into new roles of caregiving for their loved ones and has also impacted the delivery of programs and services that support older adults in the community. Supports normally accessed, are now reduced or closed, causing increased stress and feelings of anxiety, affecting the health and safety of caregivers and individuals they are caring for.
