Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors is bringing its story of services and volunteering to more people.

The agency’s series of eight short videos now has “described video” and “closed captioning” components so that those with hearing or sight impairments can learn about how Community Care helps seniors live at home.

This project was made possible through a grant of $2,500 from the County of Prince Edward toward the total cost of $4,400.

The DVDs are available on loan from any library branch in the County. They will soon also be available on Community Care’s website at www.communitycareforseniors.org . Transcription is also available.

Community Care executive director Debbie MacDonald Moynes extended thanks to Crowe Productions for work on the project.

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association offers services such as Meals on Wheels, transportation to medical appointments, noon-time dinners for seniors, foot care, help with forms (including Income Tax), respite, home maintenance, rural route reassurance and telephone reassurance programs.

The agency is partly funded by the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care through the Local Health Integration Network and supported by donations and community fundraising efforts, such as Community Care’s Thrift Shop at 153 Main Street.

The Community Care office is located at 74 King Street in Picton. For more information call Community Care at 613-476-7493 or www.communitycareforseniors.org
