2013 is the National Year of Elder Abuse Prevention and Heather Burns, BRASS Information and Benefits Specialist, and Alexis Rotella, a Waterbury Municipal Agent, were in the studio shining a light on a very serious situation occurring here and around the country - Elder Abuse.
Waterbury Senior Services Provider Network began meeting this year through the Waterbury BRASS collaboration; the group wanted to take the lead in raising awareness of elder abuse in our community.
If you are aware of elder abuse taking place, please contact your local municipal agency or social services department in your town or call 211 for assistance. You may also contact the State of Connecticut Protective Services Referral Line toll-free at (888) 385-4225.
