As We Age: Seniors network, Ridge family practice publish Seniors Resource Guide

66-page directory of programs and services for seniors.

The Seniors Resource Guide is available for pick-up at no cost from the Fraser Valley library

Two local senior service agencies have pooled their resources to produce the fourth edition of the Seniors Resource Guide.

The Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Katzie Seniors Network and Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice have collaborated to publish the 66-page directory of programs and services for seniors.

“We are pleased to be part of this valuable community initiative,” noted Dr. Al Neufeld, GP lead, Seniors Committee of the Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice.

“Through the Division of Family Practice, the Seniors Resource Guide will now also be distributed through local doctor’s offices and walk-in clinics, which will help us reach our most vulnerable seniors.”

“The support of the Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice and Shared Care project have been invaluable,” explained Seniors Network Coordinator, Heather Treleaven. “The division provided the resources to update the information and print the new guide. It just would not have been possible without their dedication to helping seniors in our community.”

The Seniors Resource Guide is available for pick-up at no cost from the Fraser Valley library, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows; Ridge Meadows Seniors Centres in both cities, city hall in both cities; Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Community Services; the Maple Ridge Leisure Centre and Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre and doctor’s offices.

• An on-line version is available on the Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice’s website (www.divisionsbc.ca/ridge-meadows).

The Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Katzie, Seniors Network was formed in 2008 with the goal of collaborating with the community to improve the health and well-being of local seniors.

For more information, contact Heather Treleaven at 604-786-7404 or e-mail seniorsnetworkmpk@gmail.com.

Shared Care, a division of Doctors of B.C., has provided funding to the Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice to improve awareness and access to seniors services that enhance quality of care. The project’s goal is to improve collaboration among providers and seniors to ensure seamless care within our community.
