Abuse / Neglect

Adult Abuse and Neglect

Abuse is the deliberate mistreatment of an adult which causes physical, mental, or emotional harm or damage to their property or their assets. There are different types of abuse, and it can happen to anyone, at any age, in any culture, no matter what his or her gender, income, or religion. Together we can reduce adult and elder abuse for British Columbians.more info
