Public Education and Outreach
Since its beginning, Seniors First BC has worked hard to raise awareness about elder abuse and to educate the public about the rights of older adults. We currently fulfill this role through public workshops and training for service providers. The goal of our workshops is to empower older adults with strategies to protect their rights and resources to help themselves and their peers.
