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 workshop for community members and service providers.
Come to this workshop and you will learn how to identify at-risk and vulnerable older adults, including how to activate the local Gatekeeper Pathway. We will cover topics of risk, including forms of elder abuse.
You will receive 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, hairdressers, 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 www.gwgatekeeperproject.eventbrite.com
