One out of 10 seniors will experience abuse in their lifetimes. Learn how to fight the serious problem of elder abuse! The World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Forum, presented by the elder abuse coalition BC-REST (Baltimore County Restoring Elder Safety Today), includes presentations on identifying and report elder abuse, the role of Adult Protective Services and prosecutors, and practical ways individuals can fight elder abuse. Resource tables from BC-REST members organizations will offer information on senior services and scam prevention strategies. Those working on the “front lines” in the fight against elder abuse will be honored. Everyone will receive a free gift and continental breakfast. Open to all, free, no registration required.
