TOPIC – June is Seniors Month, June 15th is International Elder Abuse Awareness Day
INFO – June 15th is acknowledged as International Elder Abuse Awareness Day. http://www.un.org/en/events/elderabuse/
Still today, far too many seniors are taken advantage of, abused or neglected, by someone they know and trust. Unfortunately for many, all too often, there are age-related vulnerabilities that may contribute to this crime. But, just who is the victim, and why is s/he so unwilling to report? Who is the abuser? Why don’t others help when they are aware of this? These topics and others will be explored on today’s show.
