Seventh Annual World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Elder abuse comes in many forms. It is recognized by experts as a public health crisis for which there are no socio-economic borders. Millions of older Americans are abused, neglected, or exploited each year, and estimates suggest that a large majority of these cases go unreported.

To shed light on this problem, June 15th has been designated as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, with 2012 marking the 7th anniversary of World Day.
