Today marks World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. The United Nations General Assembly designated June 15 to represent the one day in the year when the whole world voices its opposition to the abuse and suffering inflicted to some of our older generations.
Elder abuse is a hidden phenomenon. Many don't seek help as they may be fearful of what may happen to them and to the persons who abuse, who may be their caregivers or children. Often, by the time they are linked for help, the abuse may already be serious and even life-threatening. It is therefore important that we reach out to them much earlier.
This year, PAVE invites you to join us for an evening on getai to learn more about elder abuse and how we, as members of the community can do our part to help detect elder abuse early and support our seniors to get the help that they need. Click here
