Spotlight on Ageism

BC CRN is pleased to introduce its newest program offering Spotlight on Ageism.

Ageism is highly prevalent and is the most socially accepted and tolerated form of discrimination in Canada. Like sexism or racism, ageism is discrimination – based on someone’s age. Ageism can occur at any point in our lifespan – regardless of how old we are – and may lead to others making judgements about our background, capability, mental or physical status, based only on their impression of our age.  Learn more.

 

It’s Not Right!

The It’s Not Right! Neighbours, Friends & Families for Older Adults program is geared towards everyday individuals, residents, neighbours, family members, and friends of adults and older adults, and is conveniently offered in three different presentation formats to accommodate your schedule:

  • It’s Not Right! Presentation 1 – Introduction (15-60 minutes)
  • It’s Not Right! Presentation 2 – Basic (1.5 hours)
  • It’s Not Right! Presentation 3 – Advanced (3-4 hours)

 

See Something, Say Something!

The See Something, Say Something! Reducing Risk for Older Adults program is geared towards any individual, agency, business, or community service provider who has regular, ongoing contact with adults as part of their daily routine.

The See Something, Say Something! program is designed to help people identify high-risk, vulnerable adults, particularly those who are isolated, living alone, and who would benefit from some type of assistance to maintain their independence.
