Newly created website aims to help seniors

Kootenay Seniors will connect elderly with crucial resources.

A recently launched website aims to help Nelson seniors and their caregiver access services.

“In the past, a daughter looking for help with her Mom’s dementia might have had to make a dozen calls before finding just the right services to fit their needs,” said Corrine Younie, the age-friendly community initiative coordinator. “Now the information can be found on one website that is continuously updated to stay comprehensive, current and accurate.”

Younie believes the site will be a great resource for service providers and professionals who work with seniors. She said it will enable them to connect their clients to appropriate services.

Chief Librarian June Stockdale of the Nelson Public Library said their computers will be available for seniors looking for website tutelage.

“We have a number of computers available to the public here at the library and our staff is always happy to help out or answer seniors’ questions,” she said.

Younie said the library’s support of the initiative was crucial.

“We’re delighted to have the library’s support and look forward to working with them to help seniors become more cyber-savvy,” she said.

You can visit the website at kootenayseniors.ca.
