Loneliness has been identified as a risk factor for financial elder abuse, including telemarketing scams, securities fraud and predatory marriages. Some research suggests that lonely older people may be more susceptible to financial scams because they are more willing to let strangers into their home or talk to them on the phone, sometimes just for conversation’s sake.

Interview with Raza M. Mirza, PhD
Network Manager
National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE)

How is your event geared towards knowledge exchange?

The National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE), a Canadian charitable organization housed at the Institute for Life Course and Aging at the University of Toronto, is recognized internationally as a leader in knowledge mobilization and exchange. The Annual NICE Knowledge Exchange, the cornerstone of the knowledge mobilization strategy at NICE,  is not a typical scientific conference; instead, it is a unique one-day event that offers delegates the opportunity to participate in hands-on training sessions and to participate in dialogues with experts in areas of their interest. It is a broadly multidisciplinary and intersectoral event that encourages the networking of delegates across a broad range of disciplines as well as creating links between research creators and research users, both in practice and in the community. As such, the research mobilized at the Exchange represents a number of different understandings and perspectives on issues that impact seniors. The concept of knowledge mobilization, at its very core, is about bidirectional flow of knowledge and information, and to this end, the event is a true knowledge exchange event that encompasses both knowledge dissemination as well as training in knowledge mobilization.

YoMo Seniors ENG RGB

Are you looking for financial literacy resources for seniors or do you manage a seniors’ group that would benefit from brushing up their knowledge on how to avoid financial abuse and fraud?

Many seniors are contemplating important questions such as “How can I ensure that my money will last through retirement? Should I be thinking about how to manage my financial affairs if at some point I can’t do it myself? What scams should I be aware of?”

To help answer those questions, the Canadian Bankers Association, in partnership with the federal Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, launched a new program called Your Money Seniors offering free financial literacy seminars to Canadian seniors across the country.

As Canadians head to the polls this fall, several barriers stand between some older adults and the ballot box. Those with limited mobility may have trouble travelling to the polling place. Others may have difficulty completing advance ballots. A group at particular risk of political exclusion are people living with dementia.
