Unison Alberta in partnership with Bridge to Oasis (BTO) Foundation is educating Afro-Canadian seniors and their caregivers on what Elder Abuse look like.

We are collaboratively working to serve the black communities to identify and address elder abuse while also directing them, their families and friends to resources available to support them in cases of financial, physical, emotional and other forms of abuse.

It is important to recognize that many black seniors do face challenges when it comes to using technology, and to work towards finding solutions that can help overcome these barriers.

This may include providing technology training programs, improving access to affordable devices and internet service, and developing assistive technologies that can help seniors with physical limitations use technology more easily.

April 10th let’s talk about online elders abuse, cybersecurity and avoiding scams.
