World Elder Abuse Awareness Month at SeniorCare
It’s important to have a month and a day that focuses on bringing attention to the issue of Elder Abuse. June was World Elder Abuse Awareness Month and June 15, 2015 was World Elder Abuse Awareness day. But we must not forget that it is a daily issue.
Elder abuse refers to intentional or negligent acts by a caregiver or “trusted” individual that causes (or potentially causes) harm to a person 60 or older. Elder abuse can occur anywhere – in the home, in nursing homes, or other institutions. It affects seniors across all socioeconomic groups, cultures, and races.
If you suspect abuse or self-neglect, don’t assume that someone has already reported it. In cases of immediate danger call 911. Otherwise, you can call SeniorCare at 978-281-1750 during business hours or the elder abuse hotline at 800-922-2275, after hours..
This year SeniorCare held rally’s in three of its nine town area and hopes to expand it to more towns next year. Gloucester was held June 11, 2015 at the Fitz Hugh Lane Parking Lot on Rogers St., Rockport was held June 12, 2015 at the five corners, and Beverly held its rally on Saturday, June 13, 2015 in front of the Cabot Theater. All three had signage and scores of people in support of bringing light to the horrendous crime of elder abuse.
SeniorCare is Comitted to stopping Elder Abuse!
Next June SeniorCare will expand rallies into other towns, and we are planning a short parade in Gloucester.
