The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association has published the 15th edition of its Information for Seniors Directory.

The directory assists older people, their families and caregivers in finding resources to help seniors live at home.

“An updated directory of services available to Prince Edward County seniors was the final product of a very successful Social Isolation Project carried out by The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors with funds provided by the Retired Teachers of Ontario Foundation,” said Margaret Werkhoven, member, and past-president of the Community Care for Seniors board. “This partnership demonstrated very clearly how different community groups with similar objectives can achieve much more than any one group on its own.”

This 104-page directory is available free of charge at the Community Care for Seniors office at 74A King Street in Picton. Seniors and their caregivers are encouraged to stop in and pick up a copy.

“New editions of the directory have always been welcomed by the seniors in this community because they find it to be such a handy reference for all kinds of services,” said Debbie MacDonald Moynes, executive director. “We’re grateful for the funding from the Retired Teachers of Ontario Foundation that made this edition possible.”

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association offers services to help seniors live at home 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 for these services by the Ministry of Health and 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. The agency also operates the County Seniors Centre which offers programming in all municipal Town Halls.
