Established in 1990, the NDG Community Committee on Elder Abuse (NDGCCEA) is a nonprofit, community-based organization.

Our organization is comprised of volunteers, community groups and agencies committed to seniors and their well-being. Over the years, our efforts have focused on bringing attention to the growing but hidden phenomenon of elder abuse. Recently, we have focused on promoting user rights in long term care residences in order to improve the quality of care.

What We Do

A grassroots organization, the NDGCCEA works toward:

  • Raising awareness and educating the public and senior groups on topics related to elder abuse.
  • Delivering information sessions, educational programs and prevention projects.
  • Offering intervention services and supporting seniors in the prevention and elimination of elder abuse, isolation and neglect.
  • Encouraging positive and active aging.

Our outreach and intervention program, the SAVA Centre-Ouest, provided support, accompaniment and refuge service for victims of elder abuse by offering a listening ear and solutions to help put an end to the abusive behaviors. This program is currently suspended due to lack of funding.

Sources of income for the organization include individual and foundation donations as well as grants from municipal, provincial and federal government agencies.
