The COSCO Health and Wellness Institute provides free workshops to seniors groups throughout BC. We currrently have 41 workshops available for presentation by trained facilitators which provide practical information but are not intended to provide specific legal, medical or financial advice.
All workshops are developed by consulting with experts in their fields to ensure all information is up-to-date and accurate. The Institute has been featured at an international conference in Scotland and was included in a book called 'Researching Transitions in Lifelong Learning'. The Institute has offered to work with groups anywhere in Canada to get more seniors' workshop programs operational. Seniors in Newfoundland and Labrador have been given facilitator training to be able to present the workshops there.
Where it is possible we attempt to offer workshops to non-English seniors as well. So far we have been able to successfully present workshops to seniors by using interpreters in Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Tagalog, Greek and Punjabi.
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.
