ElderWatch to mark Abuse Awareness Day

-A A +A

Roane County ElderWatch will observe World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15 with an ice-cream social from 1 to 3 p.m. in the pavilion at Kingston City Park.

The event involves activities to bring greater recognition of the mistreatment of older adults wherever they live, and to highlight the need for appropriate action. It is intended to give abuse and neglect of older adults a global relevance that will sustain and move prevention efforts forward throughout the years to come.  

The program will include entertainment by Tommy Harding, ice cream and vendor booths with information of interest to seniors and their caregivers. Details will be provided about fraud, abuse and neglect.

Those attending are asked to wear purple, the color which represents elder abuse awareness.   

Call Mid-East Community Action Agency senior services at 354-0450, Ext. 228, to register or for details.
