Four Seasons Health Care Group are supporting World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) along with communities across the world to help raise awareness of older people in our society suffering mistreatment and neglect; and the need for all of us, to take responsibility in helping prevent elder abuse.
WEAAD encourage all communities to come together and share information on the subject and promote the resources and services to help change attitudes and behaviour and improve the safety and wellbeing of older people.
Below you can hear from our Managing Director in Northern Ireland Carol Cousins reading aloud and signing a pledge in support of the day.
WEAAD was conceived and launched 15 years ago by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization. The support of the United Nations International Plan of Action highlights the significance of abuse in older people as a human rights issue. To find out more visit World Elder Abuse Awareness.
