It’s World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

Today is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day and Dementia Australia is calling for all Australians to make themselves aware of the different forms elder abuse can take and to be alert to vulnerable Australians, including people who live with dementia. 

Raphael Lee Cass, Byron Bay

Last Thursday outside the Council Chambers I spoke with the Tyagarah residents and beachgoers about problems at Tyagarah Beach. I felt strongly about the Tyagarah residents’ complaints and talked to them about personal empowerment and the need to support any woman [or anybody] on the beach against any form of harassment. Other beachgoers talked of their efforts to deter bad behaviour.

The more publicity about zero tolerance for bad behaviour the sooner it will cease.

Cameras, dune refurbishment, beachgoers’ actions and Council resources will help against bad behaviour. The council made the right decision allowing time to deal with the problems.

Personally I believe isolation is the main problem. People behaving badly will continue to do so until there is a groundswell that sends the message, on the beach and on websites, for them to not come here.

  1. If Raphael had been the ambassador for the nudists / Naturists, from the beginning of this campaign, Tyagarah Residents might have felt at least being given quality attention, asked relevant questions and being heard.
