The Guelph-Wellington Gatekeeper Project educates local community members to be change-makers by helping to identify vulnerable and at-risk older adults. The Canadian Mental Health Association Waterloo Wellington and local partners, with funding from the Government of Ontario, are presenting a two-hour training workshop for community members and service providers.
Come to this workshop and you will learn how to identify at-risk and vulnerable older adults, as well as how to activate the local Gatekeeper Pathway. Sessions cover topics of risk including forms of elder abuse. You will receive materials and a toolkit to help you connect at-risk older adults and vulnerable seniors to service providers.
Who should attend:
Everyone who cares about at-risk and vulnerable older adults, seniors, and community wellbeing. This could include community members, service providers, volunteers, hair-dressers, janitors, bank tellers, postal workers, EMS workers, neighbors, etc.
We are delivering training workshops in the Guelph-Wellington region between October 2017 to March 2018. For more information on other venues, dates, and times, visit: http://gwgatekeeperproject.eventbrite.com
