Elder Abuse Awareness Day

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is recognized on June 15. On that day from 3:00-4:30pm at the East Boulder Senior Center the public is welcome to join a discussion with local justice system experts about the current laws, investigations and prosecution that affect older adults being neglected and abused. The Boulder County Area Agency on Aging will have an educational session on June 12 from 4:30-6:00pm at the Longmont Senior Center entitled Know Your Rights. This program will be facilitated by the local Long Term Care Ombudsman department. They will discuss their role as advocates for the health, safety and rights of Boulder County residents living in nursing homes, assisted living, and other residential care communities. All long term care residents and their families have access to an ombudsman that is assigned to each care community. For more information contact 303-441-1173.
