Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association has welcomed Stephanie MacLaren to the Board.

MacLaren, new to the County as Executive Director of the Prince Edward Family Health Team, was welcomed by the president of Community Care, Margaret Werkhoven.

“We are very pleased to welcome Stephanie both to our board and to The County. The primary health care services offered by the Prince Edward Family Health Team are a natural fit with those provided by Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors,” said Werkhoven. “We anticipate that her presence on our board will strengthen the connections between our organizations as we find new ways to work together to support seniors in our community.”

MacLaren said it is an honour to join a passionate and committed board.

“The more time I spend working in primary care, the greater my appreciation is for the work and potential of community support services,” she said. “It is my hope that my work on the board of Community Care will help us to strengthen the relationships between the two agencies and find ways to be creative and innovative in our partnerships.  Ultimately, we are working to the same end – keeping people well, supported in home and community – it is about delivering excellent health and social services to the residents of Prince Edward County.”

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 281 Main Street.
