abuse. For each case that is reported there may be five that are not.* On June
15, 2013, people around the world will bring attention to elder abuse through World
Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD).
WEAAD was launched on June 15, 2006, by the International
Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the United Nations World Health
Organization. The goal of WEAAD is to raise awareness around the world about
elder abuse and to encourage everyone to take a stand against those who disrespect
and abuse elderly people.

vulnerable to abuse by those around them or individuals looking to take
advantage of them. Elder abuse includes not only physical abuse but also financial
