World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is celebrated on 15 June all over the globe as an awareness initiative.
This day aims to raise awareness about the plight of elderly people who are abused and harmed. The primary goal is to develop a better understanding of elder abuse and neglect by raising awareness about the cultural, social, economic, and demographic factors that influence such abuse and neglect. As per the statistics and incidents reported, adult children and family members are the leading abusers of elderly people, and violence against elders happens mostly at home.
The theme for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2022 is ‘Digital Equity for All Ages.’ Access to technology can change the life of an elder whether it is for convenience or for communication with loved ones.
We have written a small blog about how accidentally or intentionally our elders are exposed to abuse. To know more kindly contact us on (7568555123) RESTORY.IN
