June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
“Florida’s 5.5 million older adults are a vital and important part of every community,” said Florida Department of Elder Affairs Secretary Richard Prudom. “Older adults are leaders, mentors, and volunteers and they deserve to remain active members of the state without the threat of abuse, neglect, and exploitation. In recognition of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) in June, Florida’s Aging Network has scheduled live and virtual events throughout the month to empower Florida’s older population.”
