National Association of Triads, Inc.
June 15, 2019, is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) was launched by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations. The purpose of WEAAD is to provide an opportunity for communities around the world to promote a better understanding of abuse and neglect of older persons by raising awareness of the cultural, social, economic and demographic processes affecting elder abuse and neglect.
What Triads do:
Educate: by sponsoring crime prevention and public education for older adults.
Assist: by recruiting and training volunteers to assist sheriff's offices, police departments, and other agencies.
Support: by identifying community resources and providing referrals to older persons to help reduce fear and lend moral support.
Unite: by involving the older adult population, law enforcement, community agencies, and individuals to identify problem areas in their communities.
