Mental Health and Seniors
September 2014
by Lindsey Patten

We are in the midst of a mental health crisis that impacts seniors every day. And yet, in the media, the focus tends to be on youth or working adults, not the elderly. Perhaps it's because we view some mental health issues as a natural part of aging when in fact it isn't.  - See more
Alzheimer Knowledge Exchange (AKE) and the Canadian Dementia Resource and Knowledge Exchange (CDRAKE) have united to form an exciting new network called the brainXchange (

The brainXchange will enable us to leverage our individual networks (AKE & CDRAKE) and access and share collective wisdom, knowledge and expertise; allowing us to not only support and facilitate a more effective provincial and national development and exchange process, but expand our reach to include cognitive impairment and dementia as well as other neurological conditions related to aging.

The brainXchange replaces both the AKE Resource Centre and CDRAKE websites, merging key features from each site with a fresh contemporary design.
Report on the Social Isolation of Seniors
October 2014
National Seniors Council

The Canadian population is aging. According to demographic projections, the number of people aged 65 or over could double in the next 25 years.
An emerging issue facing seniors in Canada is keeping socially connected and active. Social isolation is commonly defined as a low quantity and quality of contact with others.

Rapport sur l’isolement social des aînés
2014 octobre
Conseil national des aînés

La population canadienne vieillit. Un problème émergent auquel les aînés sont confrontés au Canada réside dans le maintien de leurs contacts sociaux et de leurs activités. L’isolement social est communément défini comme le fait d'avoir des contacts rares et de piètre qualité avec autrui. L’isolement social suppose peu de relations sociales et peu de rôles sociaux ainsi que l’absence de rapports mutuels gratifiants.
