Seniors Wellness Programs
Strengthening Families in Rural Alberta
The objective of the Seniors Wellness Program is to improve health and wellness of older adults and assist them in maintaining optimal levels of independence without undue risk.
To achieve this objective, FCSS staff offer support, educational workshops and presentations to both seniors and their families (including caregivers). The information and support offered in this program enables seniors to make choices that will improve their health and well being.
Personal assistance is also given to seniors regarding pensions, Alberta Benefit packages, and understanding how to access information.
Support groups provide the opportunity to receive support and strategies from FCSS Seniors Wellness Coordinator as well as from others experiencing similar situations. To find a support group in your area, please call 403-915-7063 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
