 B/S/S/T AREA AGENCY ON AGING, INC. COMMITS TO JUSTICE ON WORLD ELDER ABUSE AWARENESS DAY (WEAAD) THIS JUNE 15th

Local effort to raise awareness about elder abuse and neglect in our communities

The International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations (UN) launched the first World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) on June 15, 2006 in an effort to unite communities around the world in raising awareness about elder abuse. WEAAD serves as a call-to-action for our communities to raise awareness about abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elders, and reaffirm our country’s commitment to the principle of justice for all.

When we come together, we can prevent elder abuse from happening. We can put support services in place, and direct community resources toward addressing elder abuse. Our country must reaffirm our commitment to justice and create a sturdy structure of support that will benefit us all as we get older.

B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging, Inc. advocates for justice for elder abuse victims and provides 24-hour Older Adult Protective Services. Please call 1-800-982-4346 to report elder abuse. All calls are confidential.
