Inspired by posts that I see from others, I wanted to begin a weekly series of resources for people in need that are in the East Valley.  I think continuing to research this weekly series will also help me to discover what is really out there for those in need.


Elder abuse, neglect and exploitation are serious problems in Arizona and around the world. It is everyone’s responsibility to try to prevent these types of maltreatments from occurring and to report suspected incidents of these kinds to the appropriate authorities. Recognizing the importance of shining a spotlight on these issues, the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations launched World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD). The purpose of WEAAD is to provide an opportunity for communities around the world to gain and share a better understanding of the abuse, neglect and exploitation of older people by raising awareness of the cultural, social, economic and demographic factors that contribute to this crisis.

Hi Brian- I'm glad that you highlighted this!  Not everyone has family who can care for them, and sadly some who do cannot count on them for their own safety and well being.

Having the responsibility of caring for an 87 year old man who is in a facility has opened my eyes to the problem for sure.

Sadly this is happening in every community. Your post is a solid way to help people be more aware and hopefully do something by even helping one elder!

There are so many predator's out there just waiting for an opportunity to hurt someone who is powerless. Children and the elderly are at the most risk and I do believe there is a special place for those who hurt either! Thank you for posting this, Brian.

Thank you for raising the awareness about this issue, Brian. I totally missed this important day. Elder abuse, from what I have heard, is a serious problem - I have read some real horror stories. Awareness is key so people will hopefully not ignore issues they become aware of.

I have read and heard some horrific stories as well Jeff Dowler, CRS it is unfathomable to me that people can abuse others and feel ok with it.
