WISE and Healthy Aging, a nonprofit social services organization headquartered in Santa Monica, will lead a workshop hosted by the Pasadena Senior Center on Thursday, May 27, to provide advice on how elders in the community could avoid elder abuse.
The workshop on “Elder Justice: Changing the Conversation Around Elder Abuse” will cover societal factors that help or hinder safety and wellness for older adults, and will discuss strategies on how to increase safety, what resources are available for older adults who seek support, and how you could advocate for greater resources for elders.
WISE and Healthy Aging is the result of a merger of WISE Senior Services and Center for Healthy Aging, formerly Senior Health and Peer Counseling. Each of these organization served the Southern California community for more than three decades, earning national reputations for innovative and effective programs and services.
The nonprofit serves over 20,000 older adults throughout Los Angeles County on a yearly basis – from adults in pre-retirement through their elder years. It also serves caregivers and their families, senior services organizations, as well as others who share the passion and commitment to serving older adults.
Attendance at the workshop is free. To register, visit www.pasadenaseniorcenter.org and click on Events, Clubs and Lectures, then Online Events, or call (626) 795-4331. The workshop begins at 10 a.m.
