Drink Wise Age Well Training at Omagh Enterprise

Drink Wise Age Well are providing FREE training for staff working with the over 50 population in various settings.  The session seeks to train community service providers to recognise and respond to people over 50 at risk of problematic drinking. The focus will be on training providers who do not traditionally play a part in detecting alcohol problems, but who have regular contact with over 50’s who are high risk and/or who may be socially isolated. The training will give an overview of the transitional changes and risks the over 50’s may face and consider the impact and introduction, or increase in alcohol use, may have on their lives as a result. The training also allows participants to practice responding to indicators in a safe and controlled setting.
