Over 30 senior residents at Ross Towers signed up for our pilot support services project at an outdoor Meet ’n’ Greet on Oct. 7. Sunshine, music, and refreshments made a great setting for staff to share information about the services, which can include light housekeeping, meal delivery, shuttle bus, friendly support calls, Choose to Move physical activity coaching, housing navigation, and digital literacy. The project aims to facilitate connections to support services and promote aging in the right place.
Program partners include United Way BC, BC Housing, City of New Westminster, and Hey Neighbour! Collective. Ross Tower residents, family, and friends enjoyed the event—and many showed interest in becoming SSS BC volunteers!
