Join Us June For Elder Abuse Awareness and Prevention Events

There are nearly 6 million cases of elder abuse every year. That’s approximately one case every five seconds. California continues to be the state with the greatest number of elder abuse cases in the U.S., by more than 30% gap.

Common maltreatments occurring in persons age 60+ are Physical & Mental Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Neglect/Self-Neglect, Abandonment & Financial Abuse.

Purple City – Elder Safety & Abuse Prevention Campaign:
Overall Safety, Health & Wellness for Elders, Disabled Adults, & Loved Ones in a Purple City
The Purple City Alliance of Redding Initiative leads the community in promoting the overall health and wellness of elders, disabled adults, as well as their caregiver loved ones.  The Purple City Alliance will make our community dementia friendly, as we help at-risk elders, feel safe and cared for in our city. The campaign also brings awareness and equips our community to help prevent elder abuse, neglect and exploitation.
