OKANAGAN: Aging Event – Nov. 2

There is an Aging Event at UBC Okanagan taking place on November 2 to launch new CLBC aging resources – see you there!


CLBC is hosting an event on October 26th  to build a better understanding of aging. The event is geared towards CLBC staff, self advocates, their families and support networks, service providers and health care practitioners.   We will be launching our aging tool kit to support self-advocates, their family members and support networks so people can have the best outcomes as they age. Our tool kit consists of:

•            a new website called, Aware, Share, Care;

•            a book of stories that celebrate aging; and,

•            a planning guide for families, care providers, personal support networks and other supporters of adults with developmental disabilities who are getting older. 

Please see the poster for further information at:
