Door Prizes & Refreshments

• The County will hold its 6th annual Elder Safety Event in conjunction with “World Elder Abuse Awareness Week, June 13 – 17, 2016,” at Holiday Park Senior Center, 3950 Ferrara Drive, Wheaton, MD 20906.

• This year’s theme will feature the advanced types of Technology available to Seniors and how to use Technology Safely.

• The purpose of the forum is to educate our community, including older adults, family members, and professionals on the presence of elder abuse, the warning signs, and who you turn to for help.

• It is hosted by six public agencies responsible for protecting the County’s seniors: the Montgomery County Police Department, the Ombudsman Program, Adult Protective Services, Licensure and Regulatory Services, the Office of the State’s Attorney, and the Office of the County Attorney – partnering with the Montgomery County Recreation Department and ElderSAFE Center, Charles E. Smith Life Communities, with funding provided in part by the Montgomery County Family Justice Center Foundation and EverSafe.

• Representatives and exhibitors from organizations that assist seniors will be on hand to provide information. Many of these organizations play a direct role in helping seniors reduce their vulnerability to abuse and keeping seniors safe.

• Also in attendance will be Montgomery County officials, including the County Executive, representatives of the County Council, law enforcement, Department of Health and Human Services, the State’s Attorney’s Office, and others.
