Nunee Health Advisory Among 31 Groups Receiving Funding to Help Prevent Elder Abuse

The Nunee Health Authority in Fort Chipewyan is receiving funding to help end elder abuse.

On Thursday, to mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, the province announced $1.5 million would be split by 31 different groups and municipalities across the province.

This is the final year of their three-year plan, with the government of Alberta allocating $3.7 million in the program.

In total, the Society will get $47,500 to help support a coordinator to develop a coordinated community response model.

Over the past two years, the St. Aidan’s Society in Fort McMurray also received $150,000, the maximum they could receive through the program.

St. Aidan’s, along with the Golden Year’s Society, are hosting multiple events across the community for Senior’s month.
