Senior Safety Program
Welcome to Lanark's Senior Safety Program. Victim Services in partnership with Ontario Provincial Police, Brockville Police Service and Gananoque Police Service along with numerous community agencies (Community Care and Access Centre, Geriatric Mental Health, Brockville General Hospital, Community Primary Health Care) with support from New Horizon’s Seniors programs have developed a series of services aimed to provide safety information and resources to older adults. These include free home safety audits and safety planning for older adults in Leeds & Grenville with a focus on assisting seniors in keeping their environments safe.
VSLG is part of the High Risk Elder Abuse Review Team and work in conjunction with our community partners to provide case review and collaboration, community resources and referrals.
Teams of two will meet with individuals to provide support, information, resources and referrals or if preferred, will provide support over the phone and/or mail kits of information that can be viewed on your own.
You do not have to be a victim of crime or referred by the police, all you need to do is have an interest in making yourself and/ or your home less desirable to others who may take advantage of you.
