The difficult decision to no longer drive has a profound impact on many seniors. We explore warning signs of the need to consider other ways of getting around, encourage early planning and outline alternatives to driving.

Session 5: Emergency Preparedness March 6, 2024 10:30 a.m. 
When disaster strikes, people need to be ready. We explore the preparation of emergency kits and safety procedures in dangerous situations and provide information about when and how to seek help.

We investigate how fraudsters prey upon seniors to defraud them of their money and possessions. Seniors are frequent victims and should be aware of how to protect themselves.
