World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2020

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) was launched on June 15, 2006 by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations (UN). World Elder Abuse Awareness Day aims to provide an opportunity for communities around the world to promote a better understanding of abuse and neglect of older persons by raising awareness of the cultural, social, economic, and demographic circumstances affecting elder abuse and neglect.

The Coalition for Elder Justice in CT knows that we can all get involved to create lasting local changes! In line with the central aim of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, we asked our coalition members what they were doing to support the health and wellbeing of older adults here in CT. With the resources provided we created this page to help centralize some educational materials and resources on how to support for the health and well-being of older adults here in CT.
