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 enter a room, where they must solve puzzles and riddles together. As they progress in the game, players learn about some forms of elder and the resources that are available in the community.

This project is based on a collaboration between Ageing + Communication + Technologies (ACT), Respecting Elders: Communities against Abuse (RECAA) and the Centre de recherche et d’expertise en gérontologie sociale (CREGÉS).

This event is bilingual. Register today!
