World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is June 15.

Background: World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (June 15) was launched by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations. Its purpose is 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 processes affecting elder abuse and neglect.

Important: If you suspect that a crime against a vulnerable adult is occurring or has occurred, you should do two things:

  1. Report the crime to the police by calling 911; and
  2. Call the Elder Abuse Hotline at 1-866-EndHarm (1-866-363-4276).
