World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

16 June 2017

Yesterday was World Elder Abuse Awareness Day - please shout, scream and holler about abuse of older people today!

AEA NI jpegOr if you can offer financial support please click here now!

Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) want to make a noise so that others realise financial, physical, emotional, sexual and abuse via intentional or unintentional neglect of older people is unacceptable and must be stopped!

Prosecutions regularly take place where racial, homophobic or abuse of disabled people takes place - but what about when older people are abused? It is often classed as too expensive or time consuming to pursue...is this fair to the often vulnerable, isolated and lonely people concerned? NO - please help AEA to help them.

Raise awareness by talking to family, friends, colleagues and others at home, in the office, at the gym, in fact anywhere when you are out and about. Let them know about Action on Elder Abuse and that we are here to help if needed.

They support victims of abuse as well as those concerned about abuse, or potential abuse of family, friends, loved ones, or in any other setting. They can provide information, advice and guidance via their FREE & CONFIDENTIAL Helpline - 08 08 808 81 41.
