New senior program searching for participants

Wise & Well is a program created for older adults who may be feeling lonely or isolated

The Lake Country Health Planning Society is pleased to introduce Wise & Well, a program created for older adults who may be feeling lonely or isolated.

Older adults will be matched with a volunteer who will help them establish social connections and locate local resources within their community. Activities may include coffee or lunch, attending local plays, trips to the Seniors Centre, or group outings with other Wise & Well participants.

Activities are catered to the older adult’s interests. The goals of Wise & Well are to decrease feelings of loneliness and isolation while promoting mental health and well-being.

The planning society is currently seeking participants for this program. To book an appointment for an assessment, or if you know someone who you think would benefit from this program, call at 778-215-5247. Office hours are Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
