BLOG: Know Your Resources to Prevent Elder Abuse

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is June 15th.

Do you understand what elder abuse is? Do you know where to go if you suspect abuse? Do you know where to go for help is you or someone you love is being abused?

If you suspect abuse but are not sure, don’t wonder if you should call for help, just call. You could be saving someone’s life. You can remain anonymous but don’t wait to call if you suspect abuse.

If there is a threat of immediate harm, call 911.

If you suspect abuse call Adult Protective Services (APS) 240-777-3000.
