Seniors Program

Elder Abuse Awareness

This project was initiated with funding from New Horizons for Seniors program of Ministry of Employment and Social Services. Objective is to develop awareness about elder abuse so that our seniors can lead their life with dignity.

We organized a series of workshops, published elder abuse related articles in local newspapers, developed a Bengali brochure, a YouTube documentary, drama and cultural programs involving seniors in the community. A peer support group has been formed to continue awareness and prevention of elder abuse within the community.

Meet and Greet

Our Meet and Greet program allows networking and entertainment of socially excluded seniors. Senior members in the community organize potluck, movie nights, cultural programs and indoor games and spend fun time in BCCS auditorium.
