Elder Abuse Awareness Day

June 15, 2016

Once a year on June 15, communities and municipalities around the world plan activities and programs to recognize World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD). It’s an opportunity to share information and spread awareness about abuse, neglect, and exploitation in later life. Millions of older persons are abused, neglected, and exploited. Everyone can make a difference, but together, we can unite as one nation. Take a stand against elder abuse! Please contact Kim Hawkins, Regional Ombudsman (khawkins@kerrtarcog.org) or (252) 436-2040, if you have any questions.
