World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
Thursday, June 15, 2018
The United Nations (UN) has designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD).
The day aims to focus global attention on the problem of physical, emotional, and financial abuse of elders. It also seeks to understand the challenges and opportunities presented by an aging population, and brings together senior citizens, and their caregivers, national and local government, academics, and the private sector to exchange ideas about how best to reduce incidents of violence towards elders, increase reporting of such abuse, and to develop elder-friendly policies.
