This two year project built on our previous seniors’ project (“It’s in Your Hands”). The project aimed at better understanding the types of issues and questions that health care providers see or are asked about in relation to seniors and abuse. We consulted with seniors and their families to gain insight into their experience of how health care providers deal with these issues.
We also developed and delivered workshops and an on-line education tool. The project was a three-way collaboration of the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Centre on Aging (NSCA), Mount Saint Vincent University, and the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors, and was funded through HRSDC’s New Horizon’s for Seniors Program.
