Highlights of the Services to Seniors January meeting
Our January Services to Seniors meeting agenda was jam packed with three presentations:
The first presenter, Renee Strong from Capilano Services Societies spoke about the Delbrook Lands Community Dialogue meeting to discuss the future of Delbrook. The potential use of the lands is of interest to Capilano Services and the 8 organizations who reside at Delbrook. They could potentially be moved to another site before relocating to their future permanent home at the new Lionsgate Community Centre in the Lower Capilano area. For continuing information about the consultation go to www.dnv.org/delbrooklands.
The second presenter was Kate Weiss from the newly formed Elder College Society. She spoke about the formation of the new Society, the courses being offered and the creation of a number of partner organizations who will host the classes. Click here to see her power point presentation.
The third presenter was Nancy Hollstedt from North Shore Community Services Society. She presented statistics on the One Stop program run out of the North Shore Community Resources Society. Click here to see her power point presentation.
The Services to Seniors Coalition, sponsored by the Lionsview Seniors Planning Society presented the Seniors Advocate, Isobel Mackenzie on Tuesday afternoon this week. The event was extremely well attended and people were very pleased with the advocate’s presentation. Lionsview would like to thank our host Silver Harbour Seniors Activity Centre for the space and equipment, and all the people who attended. We would also like to thank the co-chair of the Services to Seniors Coalition, Tricia Andrew for her opening remarks.
For those of you who couldn’t make the event and for those who came to the event but want a second look at the presentation, the power point is attached. I also have copies of the Seniors Advocate’s latest report “Caregivers in Distress” at the office if anyone would like a copy. Don’t forget everyone: our very own Trudy Hubbard of North Shore Volunteers for Seniors sits on the Seniors Advocate’s Council of Advisors.
