Homecare Insider, April 13, 2015

WEAAD was first kicked off in 2006 by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization. The event is intended to foster better understanding of elder abuse and neglect on a global scale by encouraging the development of initiatives that raise awareness about the cultural, social, economic, and demographic factors at play.
