June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Let's come together to protect and uplift our seniors.

Every year, thousands of older adults face various forms of abuse, often unnoticed and unreported. Today and every day, we raise awareness and take a stand against elder abuse.

According to the Illinois Department on Aging (IDoA), it’s crucial to recognize the signs of abuse and take action to support and safeguard our elderly community. Elder abuse can be physical, emotional, financial, or neglectful. It's our collective responsibility to ensure our seniors live with dignity and respect.

Recognize the Signs:
- Unexplained injuries or frequent hospital visits
- Sudden changes in financial situations
- Withdrawal from normal activities or sudden changes in mood
- Poor hygiene or unsafe living conditions

Take Action:
- Check-in regularly with elderly family members and neighbors
- Educate others about elder abuse and its signs
- Report any suspicions of abuse to local authorities

Together, we can make a difference. Let’s ensure our elders feel safe, valued, and loved. 💜 #ElderAbuseAwareness #ProtectOurSeniors #WEAAD2024
