Support our Seniors Comox Valley (SOSCV) is currently focusing on home supports for seniors needing help to remain in their own home.
At the October meeting there will be a presentation and discussion of medical home supports available from the public health care system, Island Health (VIHA). Carol Tyson, Manager for Home and Community Care (HCC) services in the Comox Valley, along with Susan Barr, HCC Social Worker, will provide an overview of services and eligibility criteria. This is also an opportunity to learn more about how to advocate for needed services in our area.
The October meeting is Monday, Oct. 6, from 2-4 pm in the Lower Native Sons Hall. SOS meetings are free and open to the public. Donations to help with the cost of refreshments are always appreciated. FMI: Jennifer, 250-334-2321, Sheila 250-335-2246.
