Efforts to stop older adult abuse in Worcestershire
Efforts to protect older people from abuse is being promoted after a council estimated 4,000 are abused in their homes every year.
Worcestershire County Council said that figure did not include the elderly living in care homes, hospitals or those with a mental health problem.
Social workers and nursing staff will man information boards at sites across the county on Wednesday.
A spokesman said vulnerable adults needed care and protection.
Pete Morgan, chairman of the Worcestershire Safeguarding Adults Board, said: "The number of cases being reported is going up, and indication not that more adults are being abused, but that public and professional awareness is growing."
