DIRA-Estrie and Lennoxville and District Community Aid have teamed up to present ‘I Stand Up for Myself’, an activity to raise awareness concerning bullying among seniors. Happening June 14 at the Amedée-Beaudoin community center, the presentation was well-timed to coincide with world Elder Abuse Awareness day. Leigh Hortop, a social worker with Community Aid, said that the group jumped on the opportunity to offer local elders this kind of resource. “We were very excited to offer our clients access to English resources, since they can be hard to come by around here,” said Hortop. “We often hear about how bullying affects younger people, kids and teenagers mostly, but really, it can affect any age group. You also often hear about financial abuse, but we wanted to broaden that discussion.” See full story in the Thursday, June 7 edition of The Record.
