STOP Elder Abuse

June 12, 2013 at 5:21 PM

This Friday 15 June 2015 World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. The theme colour is purple so go hard out on Purple and protect and respect our Elders. AGE Concern speaks out for the Elderly in our communities. If you notice or suspect an elder is being abused, speak out and/or call your local AGE Concern branch. Almost..80% of elder abuse and neglect in New Zealand occurs at the hands of family members." This is why it is hidden as older people feel ashamed that their own flesh and blood is mistreating them. Respect and Honour our Parents, grandparents and Older People. More on that news release here
