Tune in! Every month Seniors Services Society of BC will be airing a podcast in a series called Fridays with Seniors hosted by Dr. Peter Legge from Canada Wide Media. Each podcast will take a deeper look into the lives of seniors in BC, rooting out deeply personal issues including housing, navigation of timely supports and services, mental wellness, emergency services, elder abuse, finances, taxes, and digital literacy.
