How Can We Prevent and Address the Problem?
There are many ways to get involved in creating a stronger society that safeguards our communities and prevents elder abuse from occurring.
BUILD PUBLIC AWARENESS:
– Talk about the issue to increase the identification and reporting of abuse by the public, professionals, and older people who experience abuse
– Provide older people who experience abuse with a safe environment to speak out and tell their stories
– Begin long-term prevention by raising awareness of solutions among students and young people
– Challenge injustice and ageist stereotypes
