PGCOS is committed to encouraging seniors to become more proactive about their own health and wellness. PGCOS advocates that seniors consider lifestyle changes BEFORE illness strikes or accidents occur.



  • FALLS are the main cause of injuries to seniors … 50% of residential care admissions are related to FALLS.
  • 76% of Canadian seniors take 3 to 6 different medications regularly … About half of the hospital admissions for people over 65 are because of medication problems (adverse reactions or mis-use).
  • About 1 in 12 BC seniors experience abuse from someone they trust or rely on … Financial abuse is the most common form of elder abuse.

PGCOS offers informative and interactive workshops on the following topics:

  • Falls Prevention
  • Prevention of Elder Abuse & Neglect

Each of these FREE workshops are approximately 45 to 60 minutes long. Bookings from community groups OF ANY SIZE are welcome.
