Event Details

         “Help Us Stomp-Out

Elder Abuse!”

In our communities, abuse and neglect of older adults often remains unrecognized.  It is a complex and multi-faceted problem that encompasses many different types of harms and can occur in domestic, community or institutional settings.  Raising awareness of elder abuse is a great challenge and it requires support from a very wide range of sources at individual, institutional, societal and global levels. The Coastal Alliance for the Protection of Elders’ (CAPE’s) mission and the goal of this World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) Walkathon is to raise awareness and inform the public about elder abuse, share prevention strategies and provide victims with resources and future protection, link resources and also promote education and advocacy.
