Hyannis, MA - The Cape Cod Elder Abuse Coalition is sponsoring a Cape-wide Inter-generational variety show on Friday, September 27, 2019 from 2:30-4:30pm.   The event will be held at the Yarmouth Senior Center, 528 Forest Rd, West Yarmouth. Light refreshments will be served.

The purpose of the variety show is to bring people of all ages together for an afternoon of fun while learning about the Cape Cod Elder Abuse Coalition.  This free event is open to all and will contain family friendly entertainment.

According to the National Council on Aging, approximately 1 in 10 Americans aged 60+ have experienced some form of elder abuse and only 1 in 14 cases are reported.  Elder Abuse can consist of physical, sexual, or emotional abuse; as well as confinement, passive neglect, willful deprivation and financial exploitation.  In almost 60% of elder abuse and neglect incidents, the perpetrator is often found to be a family member.

The Cape Cod Elder Abuse Coalition is comprised of community partners that include Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office, Bayada Home Health Care Agency, Elder Protective Services, Independence House, Yarmouth Police Department and Yarmouth Senior Center.

Part of the mission of The Cape Cod Elder Abuse Coalition's is educating the public about elder abuse using methods that include hosting or sponsoring events, providing public presentations and involving the media.
