Wednesday, June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Take time today and everyday to recognize the ongoing contributions older adults make in our communities, saying thank you for enriching our lives. As Iowans, together we can help restore respect and work towards ensuring that seniors feel safe, respected, have a strong voice and can live free from abuse. Raise awareness, take a stand and stop elder abuse today and everyday. If you suspect elder abuse or have questions, call your local Area Agency on Aging at 866-468-7887.
