A closer look into seniors’ health care in rural BC at Nelson meeting

At the BC Ombudsperson’s presentation on seniors’ care in BC that was held in Nelson last September, many seniors and their caregivers asked where they could go locally for help with their present problems, to find options for support and to improve seniors’ living conditions.

It was suggested at these meetings that another local presentation would be advantageous to provide this information.

To this end, there is a free presentation at Selkirk College Rosemont campus in Nelson, Room 16, Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. to give you this information and to answer your questions.

There will be representatives present from Interior Health Home and Community Care, Mountain Lakes Seniors Community, Lakeview Village, Jubilee Manor, Seniors Coordinating Society, WeCare Home Support, and Anderson Gardens to inform you of your options.

If you need further information, please contact Nelson and District Seniors Coordinating Society at 250-352-6008.
