Making Our Seniors Matter
I have had the honour to join a group of professionals dedicated to Making Our Seniors Matter. They are from all different areas of the spectrum, working with seniors. The group works together to find the right solution each and every time. As a result of this group effort seniors have more information to be able to make the right decisions, lessening stress.
Why is important that our seniors matter? Our seniors are the fabric that holds a community together. They laid the foundation for the success of our communities, and are still a vital and important part of it’s ongoing success. We thought it was important that seniors and their caregivers have a place to ‘go’ weekly to learn, share ideas, share experiences and create a new online community for the betterment of everyone, especially seniors.
I had the opportunity to sponsor a regular spot on each program where the Peel Regional Police discuss Senior Scam Alerts. I jumped at the chance to sponsor such an important topic.
