Fraud is the number one crime against seniors. With this in mind, The Salvation Army Grace Manor long-term care facility in Ottawa, in partnership with the RCMP, hosted an event to educate seniors as to how they can better protect themselves from fraudulent schemes and other forms of abuse. Held at the Grace Manor, representatives from the RCMP provided important information to the more than 300 participants, including residents from the Grace Manor, their families and seniors from other area residences.

Every year, across Canada, The Salvation Army provides 1,430 long-term care and supportive housing beds. Salvation Army facilities are committed to the philosophy of a Christian environment in which residents can achieve and maintain a high level of independence and life satisfaction. The Army seeks to maintain the highest regard for the dignity, worth and the inherent rights of each person.
