Join us in

Growing the Conversation

to Prevent Elder Abuse on

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

June 15th


We can all get involved to create lasting local changes!


Our 2018 WEAAD theme, 'Seeds of Change'engages individuals, agencies and organizations to "grow the conversation" to prevent elder abuse. The Seeds of Change Cards provides an unique approach taking action and being part of the solution. 


Incorporating activities giving the Cards to seniors, families, clients or customers or creating social activities that involve planting wildflowers, that are embedded into the ribbon on the card, can bring awareness to the issue. "Planting the Seeds' is just one little thing YOU can do to make a BIG difference in growing the conversation.

It's Not Right


Join us in building the movement for social change across the province, to raise awareness of this issue and mobilize communities in Ontario to take action.


Elder Abuse Ontario is creating a movement of social change in Ontario to stop abuse and neglect of older adults.
