The Seniors Safety Line is the only 24 hour crisis and support line for seniors in Ontario who have experienced any type of abuse or neglect. Callers receive emotional support, safety planning, information and referrals in over 200 languages. The Seniors Safety Line (SSL) is a “senior friendly” service with a live counsellor available to help navigate difficult systems, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The Seniors Safety Line (SSL) is open to any senior – female, male, two-spirit, trans or genderqueer. The SSL can address the diverse needs of those with disabilities, immigrants, persons of colour, lesbian, gay, bi-sexual persons, transgendered and two-spirit persons. We also provide information to relatives, friends, neighbours, caregivers and other service professionals who may have questions or concerns about an elderly person in their life.
