Today is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
Abuse of the elderly is a serious problem and one of the things we aim to raise awareness of today. Elders should be provided with support and protection throughout the year. Today we make sure that their plight is not ignored.
Financial, emotional, or physical abuse and neglect can be a problem for some of the world’s elders. An estimated 500,000 elderly people in the UK alone are being abused.
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day inspires us to take a step towards the world. Where old age abuse is no longer a problem. Resources and knowledge are needed to help raise awareness and raise awareness.
The United Nations General Assembly, in its Resolution 66/127, designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. This means that the day will come when the whole world will speak out against this abuse.
The number of elderly people in the world is increasing. Countries around the world are expecting a significant increase in the number of elderly people between 2015 and 2030.
This is a universally accepted issue. Elder abuse is one of the least common types of investigations. Unlike other such important social issues, it is not addressed in the National Action Plan.
Elderly people have every right to live with dignity and respect, free from any abuse or neglect. Don’t fall into poverty.
