Support Our Seniors meeting April 8 in Courtenay

SOS (Support Our Seniors) Comox Valley will meet April 8 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Rotary Room of the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

SOS (Support Our Seniors) Comox Valley will meet April 8 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Rotary Room of the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

Since SOS has been studying the Ombudsperson’s Report on Seniors’ issues, that will help the focus on how to ask the right questions of the provincial election candidates.

For example, what changes do we want to see for seniors in our community?

This meeting will also continue the questions that arose in the recent Town Hall on Integrated Care for Seniors. As well, the SOS project called Oars for the Lifeboat has, for the past year looked at changes which are needed to help seniors feel safe at home, in the community and in care. Those safety issues will also be addressed.

SOS has been involved in the launching of the Community Response Network and, in that process, the group has learned about many conditions that affect adults as well as seniors.

Some of the changes that are needed, thus, could help a broad spectrum in our Valley and it is important to get those recommendations to all of the candidates who hope to get elected.

For the past five years SOS has met on the first Tuesday of the month. The regular day has now been changed to the first Monday, but for April, because of the Easter holiday, the meeting is on the second Monday.

Chair Jennifer Pass is urging old and new members “to attend to be part of this important discussion on how to improve the lives of seniors and adults in our Valley.”

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