The NWT Network, through collaboration with the NWT Seniors’ Society, provides the workshop: Creating Safe Communities for Older Adults.
These events educate participants on preventing and addressing abuse against older adults. Workshops are free, and on the community’s schedule.
Creating Safe Communities for Older Adults has been conducted in a number of communities over the past number of years. If you are interested in having a workshop in your community, contact The NWT Senior’s Society and let them know!
The two-day workshop, facilitated by NWT Seniors’ Society staff, generally includes hands-on and creative activities, PowerPoint presentations, and discussion.
Workshops often feature community elders and leaders, guest speakers, such as the local RCMP detachment representatives, and field experts.
Following each workshop, we create reports with an overview of the main issues, solutions, and goals discussed by participants.
