The National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE), CNPEA, and Elder Abuse Prevention Ontario are teaming up in 2021 to develop an online workshop series about elder abuse prevention and dementia.

"Nothing about us without us"

The project, led by NICE, and funded by New Horizons for Seniors, will rely on the participation of older adults to help inform the development of the workshops. Once completed, the workshops will also be facilitated by older adults.

Workshops will be developed between January and April 2021, with the help of an Advisory Committee composed of older adults. The series of 10-12 workshops is expected to launch in May 2021.

Open call for volunteers

Advisory Committee members will help

  • help identify key issues and topics of interest
  • collaborate as a group to develop workshop design and content
  • be a representative and advocate for their community

This opportunity is open to all. People with lived experience of elder abuse or dementia are encouraged to apply.

Facilitators will: 

  • provide feedback on the workshop format and content
  • educate other adults, caregivers and other knowledge users
  • be a representative and advocate for their community

Facilitation or teaching experience preferable but not mandatory.

Expressions of interest for Advisory Committee member and facilitator roles are welcome
