Raising the Profile Project has been designed to identify the impact and challenges of community-based seniors services and make recommendations about innovative ways to ensure long-term capacity of the sector to meet the rising and increasingly complex needs of seniors in BC now and in the future.

Consultation is taking place throughout the province to gain local input and share findings leading into a provincial summit in the fall of 2017.

Guest Speaker, Marcy Cohen, has been involved in social justice issues in both a professional and volunteer capacity.  She has worked on issues related to home and community care restructuring, health system innovation, gender equality, and on policies to improve access to government services for disadvantages populations. She has become increasingly interested in health prevention and promotion strategies that support seniors' health and independence.

BC CRN Provincial Learning Events take place the 3rd Tuesday of every month except July, August and December and everyone is welcome.

What should older adults do when someone moves into their home or apartment and begins to make them feel unsafe and vulnerable, whether physically, financially or psychologically? What if these individuals won't leave?  

This problem, known as a “home takeover” can range in severity from theft to serious assault and often involves a relationship with family members or even drug dealers who take advantage of the legitimate tenant's vulnerabilities and always render older adults feeling uncomfortable or losing their own home.
