“Charting our Course” is the focus for the next meeting of Support our Seniors Comox Valley June 2, from 2-4 p.m. in the Lower Native Sons Hall.

At this meeting we will identify goals and projects for the next year.

Do you have concerns about supports and/or safety issues for seniors’ either in a residential setting or at home? Are there improvements you would like to see for aging in place in the Comox Valley?

This is an opportunity to talk with others who may share your concerns, to raise issues you think need more attention and to learn about opportunities for information, advocacy, and action. SOS projects come directly from concerns raised by our members and others who attend the meetings to share their concerns.

Current and past projects include learning more about transportation and isolation of seniors in the Comox Valley, advocating for wellness services for seniors “under one roof” (integrated care), safe driving and drivable testing, and a survey of Care Aides regarding the care they are providing in local residential facilities, among other issues.

We will celebrate our accomplishments with a social after the planning part of our meeting, with refreshments and time to visit.

The meeting is open to anyone who is concerned about  Comox Valley seniors’ well being. FMI, Jennifer, 250-334-2321 or Sheila, 250-335-2246.
