North Shore Seniors Sharing a Snack

“When we don’t share our stories about financial abuse, this perpetuates an issue that has been going on for years. We need to stand up and say no more! This shift in thinking needs to transcend cultures. Elder Abuse is not acceptable anymore.” –dialogue participant

Embarrassment and shame have been holding back seniors from sharing their stories of financial abuse. We discovered today, through the Finding Home seniors dialogues on Elder Financial Abuse, that this affects all cultures. Shame may be carried for many reasons; personal embarrassment, cultural embarrassment, fear of judgment on you personally, on your family, or on your culture. This silencing shame only perpetuates Elder Financial Abuse, as stories and experiences being shared is key to overcoming this issue personally as well as rooting out the abusers.

To help carry you through, the seniors at John Braithwaite Community Centre and North Shore Neighbourhood House have come up with 5 helpful tips for moving past shame and embarrassment:

  1. Break the news gradually, first to a close friend, then to family and then to the public
  2. Try to see what you can learn and take away from it
  3. Share your story humorously
  4. Realize that through sharing your experience you are preventing others from falling into the same trap
  5. Understand that many others are in a similar position to you

    This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.

    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

    Always be truthful. If you want to get your mortgage approved, you must be honest. Don’t say you make more than you are doing. This may lead to you getting caught with a lot of debt which you are not able to handle. After a while it won’t work out so well, even though it could seem like a good idea at first.

    The more you can speak about what you feel and what you worry,
    the much better choices you will make. Scorpio urges
    us to research issues prior to making a move.
    The power now flowing supports diplomacy and justice.

    If people liked one of your books they more than likely want to read all of them so put some
    free chapters on Wattpad and other sites. You can get
    a good monthly result for all those hard earned money directly invested in an SEO services company.
    Image optimization also significantly boosts the search engine rankings and site traffic.
