The Halton Elder Abuse Awareness Committee facilitated a “Virtual Flash Mob” on the 13th of June 2013 to recognize World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

After months of compilation the video has been uploaded to YOUTUBE.
Hundreds of seniors, caregivers and volunteers from across the Region of Halton participated in this venture along with drama students from M.M.Robinson High School in Burlington.
With the assistance of seniors from Heritage Place Retirement Residence in Burlington, the students acted out a scenario showing teens bullying an elderly couple in a restaurant.  What transpired was their rendition of the song “R-E-S-P-E-C-T”.
There are a large number of seniors living in Halton, currently 1 out of every 8 residents is a senior.  Elder Abuse is a serious and growing problem and ALL seniors deserve to live in a safe environment and be treated with dignity and respect.
The Halton Elder Abuse Prevention Committee is comprised of various social service providers from across the Region and their focus is to raise awareness about elder abuse within our community and prevent it from occurring.
For more information about the Halton Elder Abuse Prevention Committee please contact Constable Wendy Moraghan-Halton Regional Police Elder Services Coordinator at 905-825-4747 ext. 5064.
