Community Care welcomes Minister for Seniors to ‘Zoom’

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association welcomes Raymond Cho, Minister for Seniors and Accessibility to a live Zoom webinar on Friday, June 18th from 2-3pm.

Minister Cho has been invited to briefly touch on how the province has adapted during the pandemic and continues to support older adults. He will talk about the efforts his ministry has taken to ensure seniors stay safe, active and connected.

The Active Living Programs offered by Prince Edward Community Care are partly funded by the Ministry for Seniors & Accessibility. When the pandemic hit in March 2020, Community Care moved the active living programs to telephone and online platforms.

Barbara Proctor, chair of the Community Care board of directors says “this allowed our agency to continue to provide older adults the opportunity and choice to participate in multiple educational, recreational, fitness, and life and leisure zoom webinars and telephone chats.”

Such opportunities make it possible for seniors living in the County to stay safe, active and connected. More than 50 online and telephone events are now held monthly.

“We are just thrilled to welcome Minister Cho to Prince Edward County to have an exchange with local seniors,” commented Debbie MacDonald Moynes, executive director. “We’re also pleased that Todd Smith, MPP for Bay of Quinte Riding, will attend the session to introduce Minister Cho.”

All are welcome and people can register for the webinar by calling the Community Care office at 613-476-7493.

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association offers a full slate of Active Living Programs along with services such as hot and frozen Meals on Wheels; transportation to medical & vaccination appointments & essential shopping; curbside pick-up meals for seniors; grocery, pharmacy & library book deliveries; foot care clinics; help with forms (including Income Tax); and reassurance services. The agency is partly funded by the Ministry of Health, by the Ministry for Seniors & Accessibility, 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.
