World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD), 15 June 2015

TEA: Talking Elder Abuse

‘World Elder Abuse Awareness Day represents 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.’ (United Nations)

Elder abuse

Every year, one in 20 older persons experiences some form

of abuse at the hands of someone they trust. It is estimated

that only one in five cases of elder abuse is reported.

You can be a part of changing these statistics for the better.
