We offer outreach counselling and case management to seniors at home. We work very closely with other professionals in the community to develop collaborative programs to keep our seniors healthy.

There is a support group for current or former clients who have substance use challenges. 

We also provide community education to the Richmond community about the older adults’ use of alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription and over-the-counter drugs. For example, a theatre troupe - in which seniors are recruited - is educated about a health issue then write and produce short educative scripts for other seniors. This has also evolved into a stand alone theatre for seniors group.

Many older adults find it is important to review their use of medicines and other mood changing activities such as gambling and alcohol use. 

Sometimes the senior has a problem with their use of alcohol or drugs, or has a family member who has a problem. We provide service to both the senior and their family.
