This information is for older women who feel uncomfortable or unsafe in their home because they are being treated badly by someone who lives or visits there.
The information will help you decide: if what you are experiencing is abuse, why you should seek help, and how and where to find the help you need to be safer.
If you think there is a good chance that your abuser might read this page and mistreat you further, close this page after you are finished with it.
Part One of this page was created in 2009 by a group of older Ontario women with ‘lived expertise’ of abuse. The project was supported by the National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE) and received financial assistance from Status of Women Canada (SWC).
Part Two of this page is a Saskatchewan adaptation of the resource list put forward by the NICE “Bridging Aging and Women Abuse” project team in Ontario.
