The Peel Elder Abuse Support Program is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The Peel Elder Abuse Support Program provides telephone support and information 24/7 to seniors or anyone in the community experiencing elder abuse, or for anyone who knows someone who is being mistreated. When deemed appropriate, and with client consent, Spectra will connect clients to a Family Services of Peel outreach worker. Together Spectra Helpline and Family Services of Peel are working to promote awareness, discontinue elder abuse, and to keep people safe.
Everyone in our community deserves to feel safe, live with dignity, and be treated with respect.
