Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) Secretary Mike Carroll said World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, held every year on June 15, serves as an important reminder to Floridians that they can help fight elder abuse by taking time to check on the welfare of a senior.

Today, the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and community partners are raising awareness about elder abuse and neglect by recognizing Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15. Events around the state will help educate participants on how to report and prevent elder abuse.
