Event description

Description

As we age it can be difficult to have conversations on topics that affect our health, safety and well-being. Join the new "Tea & Talk for Seniors" series that will provide you the opportunity to start the Conversation!

In Session 6 join Lisa Clarke, from Kawartha Sexual Assault Center, and Julia Tanner from PRHC Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Program and Start the Conversation!

Sexual Harm and Older Adults:

This workshop focuses on educating caregivers and older adults about how to recognize the signs of sexual harm, and how to respond appropriately. People may not realize that sexual harm (sexual assault, harassment, and abuse in relationships) are problems that affect the older adult community. Unfortunately, it is a reality that can affect all age groups. Older adults, especially women, continue to be vulnerable to sexual harm.
Victims can obtain resources and support, including medical care and Sexual harm in older adults is an under-recognized issue and therefore it is important for everyone to recognize signs, and know where to access counseling.

Need help with transportation? We may be able to help. Call Shauna MacEachern at 705-928-4465.

The Tea & Talk Toolkit was devised from the project Building Foundations in Healthy Relationships for Senior Women that was a collaboration with the Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and Elder Abuse Ontario in 2013 and funded by the Canadian Women’s Foundation. The Tool Kit has been adapted provincially by Elder Abuse Ontario and being presented to seniors in Lindsay and area on the fourth Tuesday of each month during 2017. Watch for announcements about upcoming sessions.
