Break the Silence By Reporting Elder Abuse (USA)


Break the silence by reporting elder abuse

When we reflect upon the celebration of national holidays, often they are historical in nature and sometimes come from ancient world traditions.
St. Valentine’s Day or Valentine’s Day as it is now called has come to represent a day of sharing, of giving, of loving and of thinking about our dear ones.
Too often one of our most vulnerable populations, the elderly, are not given that day of sharing, giving of loving by those who take care of them in their homes. They are abused, assaulted, and neglected on a regular basis by those who have been charged with their care.
Elder abuse goes on in their homes, but they are often not able to report it, defend themselves or stop those who are the abuser.
Stopping Woman Abuse Now or SWAN is a resource for these individuals. You can make an elder abuse report confidentially and we will investigate and try to remedy the situation. We are here to make the living conditions better for the elderly person, provide resources for the family of the elderly person and make the situation better.
If you know of an elderly person who lives in their home and they are being abused, please call             (888) 715-6260       or            (618) 392-3556       and make a report.
It is time that we BREAK THE SILENCE and MAKE A REPORT.
Without the help of the community it is not possible to BREAK THE SILENCE.
Linda Bookwalter
Executive Director
SWAN
