Welcome to The Good Neighbor Training

Learn how to help friends and neighbors connect with services and resources for seniors

As members of the community, it’s up to all of us to make sure that the most vulnerable people are protected. You know the older adults in your community better than anyone. Senior Resource Connect's Good Neighbor Training videos give you confidence in your ability to connect community members to local services, even if you don’t have a social work background.

Please note: We've recently changed the name of our program. You may see both names as you browse our videos while we are completing the changeover. Thanks for your patience while we're updating all our videos. 

We can all be good neighbors!

This training is for everyone who interacts with older adults and wants to reach out but doesn't know how.

  • Friends and family members of an older adult who may not be nearby or have a lot of time, but want to lend a helping hand.
  • Community members who regularly interact with older adults at the workplace and want to reach out, but aren’t sure how.
    • Mail Carriers
    • Hospitality workers
    • Religious leaders
  • Older adults who want to be proactive, and get connected to the resources they need.

About the Training Videos

The videos walk you through WHY it is important to connect with older community members, things we might HEAR and SEE that signal that an older adult needs help, and how you can connect them to needed resources and services. At the end of the training, you can request a certificate which demonstrates that you are knowledgeable about issues related to older adults.
