About World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Every year, June 15 marks World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

Elder abuse is the manifestation of age discrimination and inequality in our society. Elder abuse is any act which causes harm to an older person and is carried out by someone they know and trust such as a family member or friend. The abuse may be physical, social, financial, psychological or sexual and can include mistreatment and neglect.

Seniors Rights Victoria provides information, support, advice and education to help prevent elder abuse and safeguard the rights, dignity and independence of older people. Please visit their website www.seniorsrights.org.au or contact their free, confidential Helpline: 1300 368 821.
