If you were not aware, this upcoming week is Seniors Week throughout the province of BC. There are a variety of events and activities planned in each city in the Fraser Valley, including information displays, workshops, guest speakers, and recreational opportunities. Events will be held at most seniors community and recreation centres and most are free (you may need to register to reserve your seat). For a list of seniors centres, visit our service areas pages for contact information.
You may want to check out the Healthy Active Aging Conference (http://www.surrey.ca/community/26808.aspx) , to be held at Newton Seniors Centre on June 9th, starting at 9am to 3pm. Topics range from elder abuse, brain health, and fitness to how to hand make greeting cards.
At Happiness at Home Healthcare, we love to see our seniors partake in these types of events. Ask your caregiver to take you out during this week to experience it first hand. Caregiving is more than in-home care service – it’s also about getting out in your community and nurturing your energy and spirit!
