C.A.R.P. Nova Scotia: Moving Seniors Safely Week March 28th – April 1st

Moving Seniors Safely Week – Watch the Zoom Presentations presented by the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM), the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) and Organize Anything.

Recognizing that there’s a lack of knowledge and awareness about many of the pitfalls – be it financial, emotional, and physical – of moving, the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM), the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) and Organize Anything have teamed up to present Moving Seniors Safely Week.
This event is designed to provide education and tools for not only older Canadians, but their adult children and friends as well. They will be sharing their collective wisdom via Zoom panel discussions, webinars, handouts, and other useful resources.
