Protecting Our Seniors

Today is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, a day set aside to recognize elder abuse as a public health and human rights issue and to raise awareness to ultimately put an end to the abuse and neglect of older adults. The annual observance is sponsored by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (INPEA).
