Twitterati spread elder abuse awareness addressing the issues of mistreatment of elderly people that still exist.

In this fast-growing world where everyone is so busy with their own lives, they often forget that as they are growing up, their parents are growing old and require more attention and care than ever. In many houses, old-age parents are not given adequate health and medical treatment. They’re denied basic rights. It’s a global-social issue which has been forgotten amidst the high talks of development. The pandemic has worsened the inequalities and resulted in ageism. It has increased the risk of abuse and violence against elders and the neglect towards all these factors needs to be dealt with now. The theme of the year for Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2020 is ‘Lifting Up Voices’. The theme calls for elder justice and for the violence to end against all aged people.
