On 14th June 2022, the day before World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAD), we join the campaign that asks the world to listen to older people who report sexual assault.
In Australia there are an estimated 50 sexual assaults in residential aged care each week. Most of the victims/survivors are people with dementia. We are calling for dementia and aged care leaders to help raise awareness of the importance of listening, the first step in support and prevention.
Join us and be #ReadyToListen
