During this pandemic, the SPVM and its partners call on seniors to be vigilant in order to prevent potential senior mistreatment. The SPVM and its partners also ask the relatives and neighbours of seniors to keep a watchful eye on them. With the COVID-19 crisis, seniors can be deprived of their usual support network. The risks of mistreatment and fraud are very real and we should all be concerned.

In the Seniors Zone of the SPVM website, you will find information on crime affecting seniors and prevention tips specifically for them.

There are resources available to you!

If you are a senior and you are being mistreated, or if you are a family member, a friend, a neighbour or a social worker in contact with a senior who is being mistreated, call the Elder Mistreatment Helpline when the situation is not urgent.
