Elder abuse awareness

Preventing and addressing elder abuse is a shared responsibility, and requires engagement and action from all sectors of society to break the silence.

As such, Leduc County Mayor John Whaley has declared Thursday, June 15 as Elder Abuse Awareness Day in Leduc County. Please wear purple on June 15 to honor this day and to show your support for those affected by elder abuse.

If you are in imminent danger or are being abused, please contact the police.

If you are a resident of Leduc County and would like to learn more about elder abuse, prevention, identifying the warning signs, or other general information regarding elder abuse, please contact the Leduc Victim Services unit at 780-980-7232.

Visit our information booth in the lobby of County Centre (1101 5th Street in Nisku) on June 29 and 30 from 9–11 a.m. to chat with our staff, gather resources and pick up your purple ribb
