Record Staff

The Société Alzheimer de l’Estrie (Alzheimer Society Estrie) is launching a public awareness campaign to counter bullying among seniors, particularly those with cognitive disorders. In each MRC in the Estrie region, people are invited to attend an afternoon on the theme of aging well, hosted by Mr. Yvon Riendeau, social gerontologist and lecturer at UQAM, and Ms. Line Tremblay, facilitator at the Société Alzheimer de l’Estrie. In their presentations, the speakers will focus on the phenomenon of bullying and ageism, presenting solutions to address the proper treatment of seniors and those with cognitive disorders. The tour began last week in the city of Lac-Mégantic. See full story in the Monday, Nov. 4 edition of The Record.
