The UN General Assembly has also designated June 15 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, for the whole world to voice its opposition to the abuse on and suffering of the older generations. The free screening will take place at 1:30 p.m. on June 20 and is open to the public.

Mental Abuse - Verbal or emotional abuse includes threatening significant physical harm, or causing emotional harm to an adult through the use of: derogatory or inappropriate names, insults, verbal assaults, profanity, or ridicule; or harassment, coercion, threats, intimidation, humiliation, mental cruelty or inappropriate sexual comments.

In fiscal year 2015-16, over 34,500 reports of suspected abuse were received, according to a news release from Gov. Tom Wolf.

With the incidents of elder abuse on the rise, health care professionals are encouraged to try to speak to the older adult person alone if they notice unusual bruising or if the caregiver is domineering and answering questions for the individual, she said.

Age Concern says the frequency of elder abuse in New Zealand will only increase with an ageing population and people struggling with increasing house prices and rents.

ZANESVILLE, Ohio -, 2017 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day and local agencies are coming up with another way to assist seniors.

She urged elderly people to come forward and tell anyone, a doctor, rector or a friend, so they know "it is a problem".

The Minister for Seniors, Maggie Barry, has enlisted Sir Peter's support to spread the word to as many people as possible that elder abuse is not OK. "This starts with making sure people know how to identify signs of abuse and making sure our communities have the resources they need to protect our seniors". About three-quarters of alleged abusers are family members, meaning cases often go unreported.

During his remarks, Luzerne County Manager C. David Pedri said the word "respect" kept coming to mind as he thought about older citizens and family members who are close to him.

The elders' rights expert also stressed the need to be aware that intervention strategies which might be suitable for addressing the issue of domestic abuse were not suitable for managing violent relationships involving older persons. We continue to take measures to ensure seniors can enjoy the fulfilling lives that they very much deserve.

Previous "elder abuse" surveys show that 50 per cent of India's elderly are abused at home.

Sometimes she said they encounter people who can't handle taking care of someone.

"Abuse in any form is not acceptable therefore safeguarding needs to be everybody's business and promoted throughout all elements of our work so we have a culture that encourages a risk sensible approach to keeping adults safe".
