Did you know that there is a new program for seniors 65 and over called Better at Home for those who may like or need extra help to remain comfortably and safely in their homes? We learned about this program and much more from our guest speaker Andrea Mills of the Pender Islands Community Support and Volunteer Programs at our first meeting of the new fiscal year on September 9th. Andrea is a very knowledgeable and informed young lady and can answer any question regarding community activities. She gave us an overview of all the support programs that are in place to assist seniors and anyone else needing help. There is a program in the works in conjunction with Salt Spring Island regarding workshops for seniors needing help understanding and using computers. There is also a need for volunteers to assist in the community.
Thank you, Andrea, for your interesting and informative talk.
