9th Annual World Elder Abuse Awareness Day June 15, 2014

June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

There are activities across the state and many local Legal Aid offices are participating – check out the list below to see what’s happening in your area.  I encourage you to share elder abuse awareness materials with your clients, their family members and friends, partner organizations, and your colleagues.  The Legal Aid Elder Abuse Awareness Flyer is designed to be printed on our red and yellow flyer stationery, but can stand alone as well.  You can also share the Maryland Department of Aging Fact Sheet on Elder Abuse
