That the General Synod records its appreciation of the sympathetic consideration accorded to the representatives of the Church through its Council since the General Synod of 1943 on matters of social security, and in particular welcomes the provision of Old Age Pensions for those seventy years of age and over and of the special assistance programme to those in the sixty-five to sixty-nine year bracket;
And urges at this time that further and continued study be given to the great discrepancies in health services and the uneven distribution of medical facilities among our people and respectfully requests that early steps be taken looking toward the improvement of this situation. CARRIED in both Houses.

[PWRDF Grant to a Citizens' Action Committee]

The first development grant to be made in Canada to a citizens' action committee by the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund of the Anglican Church of Canada has gone to an organization called: "Pensioners Concerned."
The grant of five thousand dollars was presented on June 16th by Most Rev. Howard H. Clark, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada to the founders of Pensioners Concerned, Mrs. Corabel Penfold of Toronto and Mr. Reginald Watson of Weston, Ontario.
The organization, formed in 1969, is designed to spark interest across Canada on the part of all retirees to approach the three levels of government to at least partially restore the purchasing power of the retiree's income that has been eroded by inflation.
The Federal Government is being asked to raise the exemption for retirees to three thousand for single persons and 45 hundred dollars for those retirees who are married. For those earning less than those amounts, the government will be asked to provide a form of negative income tax.
In the Provincial-Municipal field, the organization wants retirees who own their homes or are renting to be excused from the education tax. Health services for those in the three thousand and 45 hundred dollar category would be provided free.
The five thousand dollars provided by the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund will enable Mrs. Penfold and Mr. Watson to travel to various centres across Canada, beginning in September to recruit retirees into Social Action groups to make their case known to the levels of government.

Prologue
Archdeacon R. Baxter, in presenting the interim report, noted that one year has passed since Dr. David Skelton made his presentation to the House of Bishops. He reported that Phase I of the work is now completed, and the Paper presented represents a summary of the principle recommendations.
Archdeacon Baxter invited Dr. C. Schwenger to address the House. Dr. Schwenger laid particular emphasis upon health care services for the elderly.
Archdeacon Baxter indicated the intention to prepare a program for use at diocesan and parish levels, and expressed the hope that additional attention will be given in theological colleges to the whole area of care of the elderly. He reported that the Anglican Book Centre has agreed to publish a popular edition of the Report.
Archdeacon Baxter expressed appreciation to the Dioceses which have appointed diocesan representatives, and also to the dioceses which have provided financial support to the Project. He said that diocesan representatives will be called upon to be more involved now that the program phase of the Project is being entered into. He said that additional diocesan representation would be welcome and urged those dioceses which have not appointed a representative to do so.
Dr. Schwenger, in referring to the United Nations "World Assembly on Aging" which is to be held in Vienna in July, 1982, noted that the elderly population in the Third World countries is increasing, while traditional methods for care of the elderly are disappearing, creating desperate needs on the part of the elderly.
Archdeacon Baxter thanked the House for the opportunity to present the Report of the Elders and Ministry Project, and said that a full report will be sent to all diocesan representatives.

Prologue
Bishop Valentine introduced Dr. David Skelton who is a geriatric specialist and ordained priest. He explained that Dr. Skelton and Archdeacon Ralph Baxter, out of their deep common concern for the elderly, have spearheaded the Elders in Ministry Project. Dr. Skelton thanked the Bishops for the opportunity to address the House. He provided background information on the study, noting that in geriatric medicine concern is for physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of life. He reported that, barring unforseen calamity, the world's population will double within the next thirty-five years.
Dr. Skelton explained that the purpose of the Project is to develop programs for use on the national, diocesan and local levels within the Church framework which will improve the quality of life of the elderly.
Dr. Skelton outlined the three phases of the Project as follows:
Phase I
(i) to identify the needs and resources - (data is available through university computer facilities);
(ii) assessment of how older people view their needs to discover similarities and differences;
(iii) development of facilities to enable older people to become actively involved in both secular and church activities.
Phase II
Using researched data, work out strategies to fill the identified gaps;
Phase III
Implement programs and make them available to Church, society and government. Dr. Skelton noted that Bishop Valentine is Chairman of the Board which is centred in Winnipeg, and that there is a good representation of seniors on the Board. Dr. Skelton said that Archdeacon Ralph Baxter is fulltime Project Director, while he serves as technical adviser. Dr. Skelton urged those Bishops whose dioceses have not yet appointed a diocesan representative to convey the name of their representative to Canon Baxter as soon as possible. He noted that the United Nations has designated 1982 the Year of the Elderly, and suggested that a Senior Sunday may be set in the Fall of 1981 which would provide an opportunity for national coverage.
Dr. Skelton expressed appreciation to the Bishops for the opportunity to speak, and kindly offered to contribute the notes of his address. (Appendix D)

Notes
"The latter years may be a time of loneliness, withdrawal and fears or alternatively a serene flowering of much that has been growing throughout a long life. A skilled and loving ministry to the aging can be an important factor in dispelling the former and supporting the latter and is increasing a challenge and incentive to clergy and people. In meeting this challenge a parish can be greatly enriched through the faith, wisdom and experience of its older members." -- Intro.

Notes
"Most Church people will rejoice because of the provisions recently made by Federal and Provincial authorities. These fall into two classes: first, Assistance for those who have need and can prove it, sixty-five to sixty-nine years of age; and secondly, Pensions without any means test for those over seventy years of age. The basic amount in each case is $40.00 a month. That these provisions will ease many a dire case of want, cannot be doubted. We rejoice in this programme of partial security." "The Church's first task is to minister to the inmates of these [old age] institutions .... Every parish priest should visit the institutions or homes, little or large, where the aged are, and seek to know them and serve them." "In some place and circumstances the Church may be able to go further than that. Some deaneries or dioceses may be able to provide and manage a Home, and this is a most desirable solution to the problem. Whether it can be done by the local Church alone is questionable, but it is possible and probable that local state authorities will be glad to co-operate, and the Old Age Assistances and Pensions can make financing more easy". -- Foreword.
