Celebrate Grandparents’ Day by Caring for Your Elders

There is a silent crisis that effects every community in America: Elder abuse.  Each year an estimated 5 million of America’s older adults are beaten, ignored or financially exploited.  Yet, as a country, we remain silent about this growing crisis.

To begin to address this problem, Congress has an immediate opportunity to pass federal legislation that will provide a foundation from which we can begin to protect our country’s elders — the Elder Justice Act.  But we cannot do this without your help.

This Sunday, September 13, the United States will celebrate Grandparents Day.  Take this moment to honor the important elders in your life.  Please help us break the silence by adding your voice to the national campaign and urge Congress to pass the Elder Justice Act now!

    The world needs more videos about this to get the people aware of what is going on right under our own noses. As America “greys”, there is an ever increasing risk of elder abuse. Meanwhile, there is little protection for elders and minimal support for the Adult Protective Services. It is just time to pass the Elder Justice Act.
