Elder Abuse Network honouring founding member Tammy Rankin

The Durham Elder Abuse Network (D.E.A.N.) is looking to honour one of its founding members.

Tammy Rankin was the senior safety advisor for the Region of Durham, and also a founding member of D.E.A.N.

According to a media release, Rankin worked tirelessly to advocate for and support the senior population across the region.

“She was known for going above and beyond the scope of her position, and putting ‘her seniors first,'” the media release states.

Sadly, last year, Rankin passed away.

In her memory, D.E.A.N. has established the Tammy Rankin Legacy Award as an opportunity to recognize an inspiring individual or organization with a powerful story about going above and beyond to make a meaningful impact on the lives of seniors and their families.

To be eligible for the award, the nominee must work or volunteer in Durham Region, and will be willing to provide a short bio and be photographed in regards to their selection.

Submissions must not contain confidential information or restricted intellectual property that should not be circulated in the public domain.

The information contained in the submission may also be used by D.E.A.N. for promotional purposes, including social media and imagery contained in the applications.

Applications are expected to grant the organization consent, to publish any material contained in the application.

Submissions must be sent to no later than March 31, 2020.
