Have you or anyone you know experienced physical, emotional or sexual violence perpetrated by an intimate partner?
Sexual assault is a term used for crimes such as rape, incest, unwanted touching or fondling, sexual harassment or threats.
Every day, older adults suffer from abuse, neglect and exploitation. This treatment causes or threatens to cause substantial harm to an individual.
