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 older adults. This factsheet, designed for caregivers, service providers, friends and families, addresses:
- What is sexual abuse?
- What are the red flags?
- Who is at risk?
- Who are the perpetrators?
- What to do if you become aware of sexual abuse occurring to an older adult in your family and or in your care.
