Bullying between Older Adults: What is happening in Ontario?

Thank you to everyone who was involved in completing the Senior Bullying Project surveys this past summer, the response was overwhelming. We have had over 650 respondents complete our surveys and provide valuable insight to what is happening across the province regarding peer to peer bullying in the older adult community. Web will be  hosting 4 ThinkTanks across Ontario in the Spring of 2019. The ThinkTanks will host 40 stakeholders each that include and are not limited to professionals who works with older adults and older adults themselves. These ThinkTanks are a full day exercise that will have stakeholders engaging with the senior bullying project team and with one another to help offer feedback on the survey results and to use the data and feedback to develop a resource package of best practices for older adults, frontline staff, and agencies to use in order to prevent and respond to bullying.
