See Something Say Something Workshop

The See Something, Say Something! Reducing Risk for Older Adults program (formerly known as the Gatekeeper program) is designed to help identify high-risk adults, particularly those who live alone and who may be isolated. Everyone can play an important role in the community in keeping others safe, secure, and independent. Who is this program for? Anyone who has contact with older or vulnerable adults:

• Bank personnel
• Meter readers
• Volunteers, caregivers, drivers
• Pharmacy personnel
• Post office workers, letter carriers

• Restaurant personnel, grocery store clerks
• Churches, social clubs
• INCLUDING VOLUNTEERS LIKE YOU!

 

Everyone is welcome!  For more information please email programs@bccrns.ca. 

It's Not Right! Workshop

The workshop teaches people how to recognize warning signs of abuse of older adults and to respond safely and supportively.  True to life scenarios are explored to facilitate discussion and to build skills.  The agenda will include:

  • Examples of the warning signs/risk factors of adult abuse and learning how to recognize them.

  • Discussions about ageism.

  • Video scenarios of situations of abuse and neglect.

  • Skill building opportunities (how to respond safely/supportively and how to have conversations about suspected abuse).

 

Everyone is welcome!  For more information please email programs@bccrns.ca
