Objective of the Project

While offering telephonic help in crisis on the line Senior Phone, we encounter a high incidence of violence committed on seniors - women and men, in most cases this is intergenerational violence and violence between seniors. Seniors endangered by violence require specific and sensible help and support including anonymity and gratuiteness. The project’s goal is especially a reinforcement of personal a professional capacity of the line Senior Phone, which offers seniors this free of charge and anonymous help. Next, it is the increase of awareness concerning abused seniors among experts and public and a development of inter-departmental cooperation within the helping profession. The project will consist of these activities - education and personal reinforcement of the line Senior Phone, educating students, inter-departmental meetings of involved specialists at round tables, preparation of methodologies for workers in direct care and informational handout for the public. The project will help seniors endangered by violence, experts working with the victims of violence, and it will provide information to young people about this problem and its prevention.
