Seniors Helping Seniors – Free Workshops
The Seniors’ Health & Wellness Institute (COSCO) provides free workshops to seniors’ groups. We currently have more than 40 workshops available for presentation by trained facilitators. Our workshops are developed by consulting with experts in their fields to ensure all information is up-to-date and accurate. These sessions which provide practical information but are not intended to provide specific legal, medical or financial advice.
Where possible, we offer workshops for non-English speaking seniors. Many of our workshop handouts are available in Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and Punjabi. We thank the Community Office of MLA Michael Lee for their support in providing Chinese translations for many of our workshop handouts.
All workshop information is presented by a facilitator using a PowerPoint presentation. Each participant is provided with a handout of key points and they are encouraged to use this new information to help modify their behaviours to increase their chances of staying safe and well.
