Winter 2019 Do I Still Need This Medication?

GEMS Lunch & Learn!

We are collaborating with the Macdonald Services to Seniors GEMS program to bring you a Lunch & Learn on deprescribing!

Medications can help us in many ways. However, our bodies become more sensitive to medication effects as we age. Some medications may even carry more risk than benefit, causing falls, memory problems, or even hospitalizations. The more medications we take, the greater the risk. This is particularly important as 25% of Canadians over age 65 take at least 10 medications.

Please join Allison Bell, Pharmacist, member of the Canadian Deprescribing Network, and passionate advocate for safe medication use to find out about medication risks and essential questions to ask your health care provider to help you prevent medication harms!

Learn more at deprescribingnetwork.ca.

Come for lunch and stay for the presentation. GEMS is a Macdonald Services to Seniors lunch program held each week at Starbuck Hall on Wednesdays and at Sanford Legion on Thursdays beginning at Noon. A delicious lunch is only $8. This provides great food in a fun and friendly atmosphere, the opportunity to visit with old friends and make new ones. Please call Leanne at 204.735.3052 the Monday prior to reserve your space and order lunch.

* Presentations are free to attend but please let us know you are coming!
