VSU Helps Profile 6: Elder Abuse &/or Elderly Victims

VSU Helps Profile 6: Elder Abuse &/or Elderly Victims

What can VSU Advocates do with Elder Abuse &/or Elderly Victims files?

The elderly can be considered a special needs group. Advocates may provide crisis intervention, information on victimization, support and referrals to reduce the effect that crime has on the elderly. We can respond immediately or do a follow-up call at a later time working in conjunction with the Yellowhead Elder Abuse Response Network coordinator.  If charges are laid court support will be provided throughout the court process.  The Court Support Worker will ensure that you are made aware of the Financial Benefits program, Requests for Restitution and Victim Impact Statements.
