General Ideas

Establish or Join a Local Group/Network

Establish a local group to address concerns related to abuse of older adults in your community. In many regions across Manitoba elder abuse awareness networks are in place or being developed. Contact us to find out more about groups/networks in your area.

Establish a focus group. Focus groups are an excellent way to evaluate current services, educational pieces, research etc. or to establish new ideas. First step is to establish the major objective for the group. Determine what problem or need will be addressed by the information you will gather during your meetings. Focus groups usually meet several times so it is important to establish your guidelines from the start. It is important to have an agenda and stick to it, and to record your sessions so no information is lost.
