Peterborough Elder Abuse Prevention Network
If you are an older adult experiencing abuse, please know that you are not alone,and that no form of abuse is acceptable. Please also be aware that:
Abuse is not your fault, nor is it a way of life, religion or culture. You have the right to live free from fear and harm. You alone cannot control or change the abuser. Abuse often becomes worse the longer it is allowed to continue.
No one “deserves” abuse. People will help and support you.
