June 15, 2017 marks the annual World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

This year's theme for the province of Ontario is: "Starting the Conversation to Stop the Abuse of Older Adults".

Abuse against older adults comes in many forms and they are often left powerless to stand up for themselves and their rights. They must depend on others - us - their friends, family, and co-workers to help them. WEAR PURPLE ON JUNE 15TH TO START THE CONVERSATION.
