Persons are invited to join the discussion and give their input on the subject as Barbados continues to commemorate Elder Awareness Month.

Barbados celebrates its seniors during the month of September, and sheds further light on the challenges they face in their later years. These range from restricted mobility and lifestyle, to being more financially and socially dependent, the psychological and emotional pain of losing loved ones and elder abuse.

The webinar will be moderated by Communications Consultant to the Ministry of People Empowerment, Ian Bourne.
