Alberta Elder Abuse Awareness Network

What is AEAAN?

The Alberta Elder Abuse Awareness Network is a network of Albertans dedicated to increasing awareness and supporting a community response to elder abuse. Canada's fastest growing population is over the age of 65 and is rapidly becoming vulnerable to abuse that can rob them of their well-being, dignity and, horrifyingly, their lives. AEAAN is:

  • a province-wide network of professionals
  • represented by communities across Alberta
  • promoting the well-being of older adults
  • working to increase community awareness
  • developing resources to address elder abuse
  • strengthening the right to safety, respect and dignity
