World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
Today is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Our friends at Charles E. Smith Life Communities run a wonderful program and center, The ElderSAFE Center, that is dedicated to protecting older adults experiencing abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation.
Their language-accessible helpline remains open Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm (301-816-5099). They offer a wellness program, temporary shelter program, information on community services for victims of elder abuse, and more.
To honor World Elder Abuse Day, on Wednesday, June 17th at 1pm Officer Smith will join the ElderSAFE for this week’s wellness group. Officer Smith will share information on financial scams and how to keep yourself safe.
