Elder Abuse Awareness

Posted on: June 6th, 2010 by wmapother 5 Comments

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is held annually on June 15.  As part of the events surrounding this call-to-action, the National Center on Elder Abuse is once again running my PSA on the issue in movie theatres around the country. (A short article on that is here.)  The PSA on YouTube is here, and my post last year on the PSA is here.

A couple articles on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day are here and here.

(Apparently, I have to get this out of my system today, so: herehearhierheerhareherehearheearheeeeerrrrreee.  Whew.)

And some FAQs on Elder Abuse are here.  Here’s perhaps the most important one, a general definition of elder abuse.  If you see elder abuse, or evidence of it, please report it to the authorities immediately.

    this should be given priority anywhere in the world, believe me it's an international issue and too bad there're so few people engaged in that cause. i've just faced my own comment in that youtube link btw *shrieek* 😀
