World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Do you know the warning signs of elder abuse, neglect, and/or exploitation?

-Being without necessary food or medical care.

-Being prevented from seeing friends or family.

-Feeling concerned about something you were convinced to purchase that you do not really need or want.

-Feeling uneasy about how someone handles your money.

-Feeling uncomfortable about how someone uses your home or property.

We all deserve to lead happy and healthy lives free from abuse as we age, yet older people are mistreated more often than we think. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) is June 15. Join us in raising awareness and working together to create strong communities that prevent elder abuse.
