Join sponsors Rockport Police Department, Rockport Council on Aging, and SeniorCare anytime between 10 a.m. through noon on Thursday, June 14, 2018, to show your support in helping to end elder abuse. Hundreds of thousands of elders are abused, neglected, or exploited annually. Unfortunately, no one is immune. Elder abuse occurs in every demographic and can happen to anyone… a family member, a neighbor, even you.

Elder abuse is a rapidly growing crime and is punishable by law. Often, victims and bystanders do not recognize the signs of elder abuse. Please join us to learn more and to raise awareness of this epidemic. Together, we can make a difference for our community members.

All are welcome; bring your business, your organization, or a hand-made banner or sign.
