Description: 

On World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, individuals and organizations from across the world are urged to raise awareness of the various types of abuse to which older individuals are subjected. We hope that you will join us in making this year’s recognition of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day a rounding success in the United States. This year, take a stand in the fight against elder abuse and take a stand for dignity and respect of our elders. Looking for other ways to commemorate World Elder Abuse Awareness Day this year and take a stand against elder abuse? As part of the Year of Elder Abuse Prevention, the Administration for Community Living is pleased to provide information, tools, and resources to support partners in their efforts to raise public awareness about elder abuse and shed light on the importance of preventing, identifying, and responding to this serious, often hidden problem. Check out the YEAP toolkit and WEAAD logos for resources when planning your activities. And don’t forget to let the NCEA know what you’re planning this year to commemorate World Elder Abuse Awareness Day! You can share your event, as well as see what others are planning, too!
