World Elder Abuse Awareness Day June 15, 2020
With Vermont’s growing population of older adults, it is important that we remind ourselves of the vital role that we all play in protecting those with vulnerabilities from abuse.
Older Vermonters are statistically more likely to experience social isolation, and with the current environment complicated by a pandemic, people are even more isolated and potentially at risk.
On Monday June 15th we will join in recognizing World Elder Abuse Awareness Day and wanted to take this opportunity to share some resources that may be especially helpful during this time. Please use this link to obtain more information on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day June 15, 2020.
