Community Conversation
July 15, 2020

Every year, communities around the world honor and recognize World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15. Because our world has changed so much over the past few months and we were not able to hold the typical events we would in past years, our team wanted to bring together experts and professionals in Broomfield who work with older adults in our community to provide information, resources, and answer any questions. We want to recognize and honor the significant contributions of our older adult citizens to the City and  County, as well as recognize those who love and care for them.
