In honor of Elder Abuse Awareness Day, consider watching or sharing this 16 minute video entitled An Age For Justice: Confronting Elder Abuse in America created by the National Council on Aging and WITNESS in conjunction with the Elder Justice Coalition. It’s short and powerful.
Also, if you ever want or need to do a presentation on elder abuse, there is a great guide to hosting a screening of this video at elderjusticenow.org.
