Nursing Home Abuse Guide

As you very well may, or may not know, nursing home abuse is a very difficult issue to face.  Existing in many forms, many of which are not evident by clear physical signs, it is a problem our society is far to familiar with.  Please visit nursinghomeabuseguide.org for more information.

Seniors on the Move

This program helps seniors broaden their understanding of Canadian multiculturalism and, at the same time, stay active, connected and engaged within the community through:

  • Cross cultural field trips to cultural and religious sites
  • A Multicultural Seniors’ Speakers’ Bureau
  • A senior’s ‘rest tent’ at outdoor community events
  • Edmonton’s First Annual Multicultural Seniors’ Day

The program reaches out to seniors who are isolated due to barriers of culture and limited finances. Click here for more information.
