Elder Abuse Awareness Day in Ohio

The fifteenth day of June is designated as "Elder Abuse Awareness Day" to increase public awareness of the innocent victims of elder abuse.
(Ohio Revised Code. GENERAL PROVISIONS. Chapter 5: STATE INSIGNIA; SEALS; HOLIDAYS. 5.2273 Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
Added by 129th General AssemblyFile No.80, HB 215, §1, eff. 5/22/2012.)
Elder abuse (also called "elder mistreatment," "senior abuse," "abuse in later life," "abuse of older adults," "abuse of older women," and "abuse of older men") is "a single, or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person." This definition has been adopted by the World Health Organization from a definition put forward by Action on Elder Abuse in the UK. Laws protecting the elderly from abuse are similar to, and related to, laws protecting dependent adults from abuse.
