World Elder Abuse Awareness Day logo
 
 
Elder abuse can happen to anyone, from any walk of life.  It is a well hidden problem that affects  hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. The term “elder abuse” covers a wide range of mistreatment and usually involves the aspect of abuse in a trusted relationship.  Among other things this exploitation can involve physical, emotional or financial abuse.  The elderly often lack resources and don’t know where to turn for help.

You can help! 
  • First, learn more about this issue.  Our WEAAD event is free and offers information on every aspect of this issue.
  • Second, keep a watchful eye on elderly family, friends and neighbors to help them stay safe and healthy.
  • Third, let others know what you learn.  As more people become aware, the elderly in our community will be safer, healthier and happier.
