Support Our Seniors meet Monday

Because of cutbacks over the last decade it is difficult for seniors to know what they can depend on.

“What happens when I can’t take out the garbage?”

That’s a question that SOS (Support Our Seniors) Comox Valley hears over and over.

Because of cutbacks over the last decade it is difficult for seniors to know what they can depend on. Most seniors worry about what services will be available for their declining years.

At the next meeting of SOS on Nov. 4 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the lower Native Sons Hall, these questions will be addressed.

The public services that haven’t been lost will be outlined. Then the private services which are trying to fill  in the gaps will be discussed. The ongoing lack of service will be acknowledged.    The priorities for recommendations will also be discussed.

For more information, call Jennifer at 250-334-2321 or Gwyn at 250-338-6265.
