February 26 is Pink Shirt Day. For this occasion, A&O: Support Services for Older Adults, with support from the Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, is launching an anti-bullying campaign on social media to help raise awareness of bullying of older adults: #PinkShirtDayForAll.

In a recent Canadian study, preliminary reports identified that 57% of English-speaking older adult respondents reported being bullied in the last 4 months.

Welcome to the second installment of our Anniversary blog series!

We continue our oral history of the Network by bringing together Raeann Rideout, Pat Power, and Kathy Majowski. Raeann and Pat were co-Chairs of CNPEA for many years and led the Knowledge-Sharing Project, which resulted in the creation of this very website. Kathy Majowski has been the Chair of CNPEA since 2017. Together they explore the landmarks of the network and of the Hub, share personal experiences, and consider the challenges to come.This conversation has been edited for conciseness.

You are invited to participate in a psychological research study conducted by Dr. Lindsay Malloy at Ontario Tech University

The research is being carried out in hopes of finding ways to encourage older adults (65+) to report maltreatment. This research concerns police interactions with older adults. Researchers would like to speak with police who have experience interviewing older adults about their experiences, challenges, concerns.

scoa logo rgbcolorUntil recently, bullying was believed to be a childhood phenomenon. We now recognize that bullying occurs at all ages and stages and in all settings.

For many older adults, aging in place means moving from their family home into a communal living facility. Community living presents challenges that Saskatoon Council on Aging [SCOA] was made aware of through community engagement activities in congregate living dating back to 2013. Community members identified senior-to-senior bullying to SCOA’s Older Adult Abuse Task Force (OAATF) as a significant issue negatively impacting the quality of life of older adults.

Back in 2000, a small group of stakeholders and forward thinkers got together to discuss the need for a pan Canadian network. The goal: connecting the numerous people working to stop elder abuse across Canada, and providing access to reliable, up-to-date information to all.

They already knew that elder abuse was a much larger issue than most realized. They also understood that the only efficient way to address this growing issue was to build an informed, coordinated, and cross-sectoral approach, and to increase awareness and understanding of elder abuse among Canadians. From their first meeting to the launch of our knowledge-sharing Hub in 2015, to today - it has been a long road.

Throughout 2020 we will run a fundraising campaign called 20-20 and we hope that you will choose to support us during this landmark year.
