WEAAD is commemorated on June 15th every year – The day is an opportunity for people or organizations to take action to protect older people by raising awareness about elder abuse, why it occurs, and what we can do to stop it. We can act collectively to support justice for all.
This year we are collaborating with Pickens County Meals on Wheels to provide four hundred (400) homebound residents with information and resources to help keep themselves safe from scams and abuse.
Our goal is to provide each MOW recipient a World Elder Abuse Awareness Day bag filled with helpful resources and goodies.
Each bag will contain a folder filled with educational information regarding Elder Abuse, brochures from the Appalachian Council of Governments, an All About Seniors magazine as well as some fun goodies and snacks.
WEAAD is a way to renew our commitment to preserving the rights of older adults – including the basic human right to live with dignity, free from abuse and neglect.
