World Elder Abuse Awareness Day – Lifescape AmeriCorps Seniors

Lifescape AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP Spreads Awareness on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day & Hands Out Culvers Ice Cream

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is a call-to-action to bring attention to communities the issues of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. Lifescape's AmeriCorps Senior RSVP team will be at 3 locations in 3 counties handing out information about WEAD and about Lifescape's AmeriCorps volunteer program.

Help spread the word for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAD) on June 15. It can be hard to imagine that anyone would deliberately want to harm an elderly person, but unfortunately, elder abuse is a widespread problem. Some instances of elder abuse are intended to exploit the person financially; you’ve probably heard of scams targeting seniors. In other cases, it’s simple negligence: caregivers don’t provide the basic necessities, like nutritious food, appropriate medication, safety, or assistance with hygiene. If you see something, say something!

Culvers recognized the importance of WEAD and generously donated 40 ice cream scoop coupons for each location. So the first 40 visitors will receive a voucher for a free scoop of delicious Culvers Ice Cream!!!

We will be in 3 different counties and each location will have 40 Culvers ice cream vouchers to hand out. Locations and times are below:

- Lifescape Adult Day Program - 1330 S. Alpine Rd. Rockford, IL from 8AM-4PM

- Sycamore Farmers’ Market at Blumen Gardens - 403 Edwards St, Sycamore, IL from 3PM-7PM
