World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
June 15, 2015


As the percentage of Americans over the age of 50
continues to grow, the number of older adults experiencing abuse in later life is also increasing.
We encourage you to get involved in local WEAAD events because you can make a difference. Here are some ideas:
  • Take advantage of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day to highlight domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking in later life in your community
  • Use the phrase “victims across the lifespan” to promote recognition of older victims in written materials
  • Include images of older adults in brochures, posters and presentations
  • Include examples of abuse in later life in educational events
  • Conduct outreach where older adults gather
  • Highlight older victims during domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking awareness months
  • Work collaboratively with experts in aging network services and elder abuse
Information and resources on elder abuse is available through the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL), U.S. Department of Justice Elder Justice Website and the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA).  Additional information on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day can be found on the Administration for Community Living website.
If you or someone you know is experiencing abuse, neglect, or exploitation visit, U.S. Department of Justice Elder Justice Website,  NCEA’s State Resources webpage or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY).

Shelter and Transitional Housing is an important response to safety and provides options for women who are seeking safety following domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or dating violence. No one size fits any community. There are some basic ideas about the intent of shelter and transitional housing responses, yet our indigenous identity will go a long way to shaping what a shelter or transitional housing program looks like in the community.

Creating Sister Space is a new resource available for download that will assist Tribal and Native specific programs in the development of their shelter and transitional housing program.
“There’s a recognition that power comes from within. It comes from having knowledge and vision. The sun has power. The wind has power. We have the power to bring forth and nurture new life. That’s the power Mother Earth has. There’s the power of love.” (Washinawatok, 1995)
