World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

On Friday, June 14 at 1 p.m. outside of the Gerace Office Building the Chautauqua County Council on Elder Abuse, County Executive George Borrello, Commissioner of Chautauqua County Social Services and Public Health Christine Schuyler and Office for the Aging Director Mary Ann Spanos will be commemorating World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

The International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations (UN) launched the first World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) on June 15, 2006 in an effort to unite communities around the world in raising awareness about elder abuse. WEAAD serves as a call-to-action for our communities to raise awareness about abuse, neglect and exploitation of elders, and reaffirm our country’s commitment to the principle of justice for all.

“Chautauqua County has a large population of seniors and many of them are vulnerable to abuse or being taken advantage of,” said Chautauqua County Executive George Borrello. “I am proud to once again support this effort with our community partners to provide preventive measures and justice for our seniors.”
