World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) was launched by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations. The purpose of WEAAD is to provide an opportunity for communities around the world to promote a better understanding of abuse and neglect of older people by raising awareness of the cultural, social, economic and demographic processes affecting elder abuse and neglect.
The DES Division of Aging and Adult Services supports at-risk Arizonans to meet their basic needs and to live safely, with dignity and independence. Services and programs reach a diverse population of Arizonans from homeless youth to older adults.
This conference is for individuals, professional organizations, and communities to connect and advocate against abuse, neglect, and exploitation of older people including individuals with disabilities. This is an important opportunity for those serving such communities; government, service providers, nonprofit and for-profit organizations to network, discover innovative practices, and share information and resources.
