Boundary setting for seniors Oct. 28

Boundary setting for Seniors is a free presentation by Erik Kondo from Not Me! Inc. at the Arlington Council on Aging, Tuesday, Oct. 28, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., in the Mural Room.

The Arlington Elder Abuse Task Force continues to carry their message through this prevention program tailored to the needs of our seniors by instructor Erik Kondo. Boundary setting is a fundamental element of individual and societal safety and security, yet most people are unaware of the concepts of respect, communication and enforcement and their role in setting boundaries.

This presentation/workshop will give seniors options to take when faced with unwanted behaviors by people in all areas of their lives. Invite a friend to join you and learn these important concepts and applications for personal safety.

Call COA to register at 781-316-3400. Need a ride? Let us know.
