In preparation for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (15th June every year), Ciara O’Dwyer, Co-ordinator of ENNHRI’s Project on The Human Rights of Older Persons and Long-term Care attended a workshop in Brussels on 14th June 2017 hosted by AGE Platform Europe, the Council of Europe, the European Commission and Victim Support Europe. The workshop provided valuable information on detecting and supporting victims of elder abuse – useful in particular for care providers and anyone monitoring care for older persons, including NHRIs.
