As part of the Access to Justice project, Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (CNPEA) created a pair of factsheets on Sexual Abuse in Older Life. One factsheet is geared towards caregivers, service providers, friends and families. This factsheet, designed for older adults, addresses:
- What is sexual abuse?
- Who are the most likely perpetrators?
- Common feelings and reactions seniors experience after being harmed sexually
- What to do to stay safe from abuse and increase one’s safety
- Additional provincial and territorial resources
