Older Adults, Medications and Alcohol
 
Developed by Partners Seeking Solutions with Seniors and presented to older adults by peer leaders, the video features typical problem situations commonly faced by seniors using medication and/or alcohol. There are vignettes pointing to the hazards of driving while medicated, the dangers of medication sharing, and the compound effects of taking medicines with alcohol.
 
The video is intended to get people talking. "So often, people don't talk about what's going on", says Jill Overwater, co-chair of Partners, "and so the video is an ice-breaker, to open up a conversation."
 
Our speakers are trained older adults who can provide a fun interactive presentation that fits into your program.
 
Invite ALCOA Manitoba to your next event to speak about the benefits of active living, falls prevention or healthy lifestyles.
