BCHC is excited to be working with Council of Senior Citizens Organizations of British Columbia (COSCO BC) to provide regional training opportunities for "seniors helping seniors". Volunteers will learn to facilitate valuable health promotion workshops in their community on topics such as age-friendly communities and mature driver safety.
Health Promotion Workshops – Seniors Helping Seniors
COSCO has developed many health and safety promotion workshops that are available free of charge to any seniors' group all over BC. Each session lasts for approximately 90 minutes and a trained volunteer senior facilitator delivers the program. The workshops contain practical and useable information and are free of technical jargon. Participants are encouraged to make concrete plans to create a safe physical environment and to adopt strategies for healthy living.
