DOVE in Delta Events for 2018
World elder abuse awareness day
The United Nations has designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
The day aims to focus global attention on the problem of physical, emotional, and financial abuse of elders. It also seeks to understand the challenges and opportunities presented by an ageing population, and brings together senior citizens, and their caregivers, national and local government, academics, and the private sector to exchange ideas about how best to reduce incidents of violence towards elders, increase reporting of such abuse, and to develop elder friendly policies
The documents below review some of the many aspects relationship violence takes on and are used at those events.
