Today (June 15th) marks he celebration of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD). Of course, here at Them Days we are involved quite regularly with elders, interacting with them to gain valuable insight into the old ways and early days of Labrador. Of course we always love having visitors too at Them Days, of all ages. But to raise awareness for elder abuse, you can wear purple clothing or purple accessories. It’s the colour designated by the creators of this day, the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (INPEA). The slogan for this day is:
“My world…your world…our world…free of elder abuse”.

So please help to raise awareness if you can. Many people across the world, both young and old will appreciate it. Thanks for reading and I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
