The escape room on elder abuse is an interactive, educational and immersive space to grapple with the sensitive issue of elder abuse. Small teams of two to four individuals are invited to enter a room, where they are asked to solve puzzles and riddles together. As they progress in the game, players learn about some of the forms that elder abuse can take, and about the resources that are available in the community. This project is based on a collaboration between ACT, Respecting Elders: Communities against Abuse (RECAA) and the Centre de recherche et d’expertise en gérontologie sociale (CREGÉS).
