Elder Abuse is not a problem for “someone else” to solve. Every one of us shapes the communities in which we live, therefore, every one of us has a role to play in advancing elder justice. Let us keep the energy going because every day we are aging and striving to make the world a better place.

We are proud to have the support and participation of all 50 states engaged in World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) events across the nation, we have totaled 340 events in 14 countries and are still climbing!

We appreciate everyone's efforts throughout the world to declare their commitment to ending abuse.

Here are 5 things EVERYONE can do to prevent elder abuse.

Today, the HHS Office of Inspector General released two reports addressing the identification, reporting, and investigation of potential abuse and neglect of seniors and beneficiaries with disabilities. The two reports have determined that #ElderAbuse and #Neglect are not always identified or reported to enforcement agencies by nursing homes or health workers.

Health care providers must take advantage of their unique roles to assess for mistreatment as well as to spread knowledge on recognizing, reporting, and preventing #ElderAbuse.
