I have the honour of speaking at the Elder Abuse Awareness Day here in Kelowna, British Columbia. According to the Seniors Outreach Services Society press release,

Elder Abuse Awareness Day will be officially declared on Thursday, June 15th by the Mayor of Kelowna at the Interior Health centre, 1340 Ellis St. from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. This special day raises awareness of the abuse and neglect that some of our seniors suffer, how these factors impact on people’s lives and what help is available in our community. June 15 also promotes the community resources that are available to help abused seniors in Kelowna and area.
