Coordinated Community Response Plan

What is a Coordinated Community Response (CCR) to Elder Abuse?

Given the complex nature of elder abuse, it is recognized that no one agency is equipped to deal with these cases, and for this reason this initiative is a coordination of supports and services that will increase the capacity to manage elder abuse cases within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.

Aspects of the Coordinated Community Plan include:

  • education
  • awareness
  • prevention
  • intervention
  • follow up

Having this in place will create a safer, more secure environment for seniors in our region.

Age Friendly Communities

St Aidan’s Society has been serving our Region and its’ citizens since 1973. We are bringing our long standing history of service delivery and advocacy to an exciting initiative; being part of establishing Fort McMurray as an Age Friendly community under the standards of the World Health Organization.

Age Friendly communities help our seniors live fuller, more active and healthier lives. Age friendly communities help prevent the neglect and abuse of older adults and increase the safety and wellbeing of seniors. An age friendly community fosters inclusion, fights ageism and provides equal opportunity for participation in community life.
