SeniorLAW Center and CARIE mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day with Elder Justice Conference

Elder abuse is a national crisis: millions of older Americans are abused, neglected or exploited each year. Financial exploitation alone costs older Americans $2.5 billion nationally. Research indicates that more than one in ten elders may experience some type of abuse, but only one in five cases or fewer are reported.

June 15, 2012 marks the seventh annual World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, intended to give abuse and neglect of older adults a global relevance that will sustain and move prevention efforts forward throughout the years to come. On this day, activities that promote awareness of the mistreatment of older adults are occurring throughout the world. CARIE and SeniorLAW Center have been working to bring attention to this vexing issue and help to develop collaborative responses to assist in education and training aimed at identifying and supporting victims to get help they need to be safe. On June 15 they will hold the last of four regional Elder Justice Conferences in Pennsylvania to provide a forum for those who help Senior Victims to find ways to work together to combat this critical problem, celebrate the efforts Pennsylvanians are making to protect older adults, and work to promote justice for elders.
