NCCD supports World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, and wishes to acknowledge and thank all the people in adult protective service systems who devote their professional careers to responding to the abuse, neglect, and exploitation of our nation’s vulnerable adults, specifically elders. For these people, every day is elder abuse awareness day.
