June 15, 2017 is designated World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
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 ageing 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.
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) – Primary Health Care – Community Development – extends an invitation for all WRHA programs/sites and community partners to recognise World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) on June 15th by wearing purple.
