Change Your Email Fonts to Purple and Display Image for Elder Abuse Awareness

Event Description:
Join me in my unique Elder Abuse Campaign In 2013 I wanted to do something new to raise awareness of elder abuse. I had the idea to change my fonts to purple and place a logo on outgoing emails asking others to do the same. Since that time, the outpouring of people participation in North Carolina, across the nation, and as far away as Ireland and Australia has been astounding. I ask you to join me this year. Simply change your font color to purple and place a logo on your emails through June 15, or longer if you so choose, to bring awareness to this serious problem.To request the logo email thessia.everhartdavidsoncountync.govThank you in advance for participating

We now also have funding through Oakland county for Oakland Co residents.Victims can seek refuge in one of three JSL communities for as long as 90 days while social workers aid in resolving abusive situations and creating safe transitions to return home safely.We are dedicated to ensuring that every older adult in SE Michigan is safe and cared-for, says Megan Mirza, Center Director.We must put an end to older abuse neglect and abuse, says Barbra Giles, LMSW, ACSW, JSLs Associate Director of Aging Services. Our goal is to provide support, safe harbor and security for the most vulnerable among us.Services and shelter are provided to victims at no charge. Assisted living, independent living and skilled nursing situations are available. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Event ScheduleSpeakers, including Gov. Rick Snyder, will begin at 930 a.m., to be followed by a boxed lunch picnic and sand art mural for the community to create that will be featured on Belle Isle thereafter as a permanent art piece.About the Center for Elder Abuse Awareness at Jewish Senior LifeThe Center for Elder Abuse Awareness was created in 2015 by Jewish Senior Life of Metropolitan Detroit, , to educate, empower and protect older adults in Southeastern Michigan.
