World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2019

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, held June 15 each year, is an effort to raise awareness of the mistreatment of older adults. In Alberta, and across Canada, communities host activities and raising awareness to highlight the day. For a number of years, the Alberta Elder Abuse Awareness Council has collaborated with the Alberta Government to create materials that increase awareness and support a community response to elder abuse. Materials include an elder abuse poster as well as information on financial abuse of seniors, an elder abuse screening guide for service providers, a guide with information about options for financial and personal decision-making; and a fact sheet on elder abuse available in seven different languages.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was established in 2006 by the International Network for Elder Abuse.
