Q: How will the Atlanta Regional Commission recognize World Elder Abuse Awareness Day?
A: ARC is a strong supporter of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. We established an Elder Rights Team that has been conducting education and community outreach to raise awareness of this issue and help prevent some abuse cases.
This year, ARC has adopted a Proclamation in recognition of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day and is encouraging local governments to do the same. Additionally, ARC is hosting a training session for staff and community partners on June 15 to share experiences and to promote awareness and prevention.
