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