General Ideas

Present an Award

Organize an awards ceremony to celebrate and recognize individuals or groups who have worked to raise awareness about elder abuse.

Here are some ideas for establishing awards:

  • People who have worked to help communities build bridges between individuals and organizations so they have a better understanding of abuse and neglect in later life
  • People who have worked with a particular ethnic community on abuse issues affecting older adults
  • People who have worked with administration to meet the cultural foods needs of ethnic seniors in a congregate setting
  • People who have worked to reduce the use of physical or chemical restraints in nursing homes
  • People who work to bridge the generation gap between older adults and children
  • People who conduct trainings to educate their communities about elder abuse
