Addressing the abuse of older adults, or elder abuse is a major strategic priority for the NWT Network to Prevent the Abuse of Older Adults. The initial research by the NWT Seniors’ Society in 2010 as part of the Making Connections: Building Networks to Prevent the Abuse of Older Adults, clearly showed that abuse of older adults continues to be a major issue in communities throughout the NWT. This was identified in the above-mentioned report.
