World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) is an important day for raising awareness about elder abuse prevention and intervention. In Maine, elder abuse awareness is particularly important due to our state’s rapidly aging population.

Every year, the Maine Council on Elder Abuse Prevention asks all elder abuse prevention and intervention advocates to get involved in raising awareness about elder abuse.
