We here at 411 are always happy to share news and information – all things related to health and wellness, community and the effect of current news and politics with the focus as it relates to seniors.

We have just celebrated our 1st anniversary at 3502 Fraser St. – and what a year it’s been!  Our free tax clinic for seniors has filed over 1200+ tax returns.  In addition, we continue our Information  and Referral services throughout the year.  Our priority has always been to strive to help those that are in need, our raison d’être.

Our programs are thriving : whether you are looking for an exercise class, ESL, Spanish, canasta, art classes, book club or you just want to meet up with your friends for a Soup and Sandwich meal (Wednesdays and Fridays at noon) or a Social Saturday – 3rd Saturday of the month – 10:30 – 12:30.

And each month, we feature SPECIAL EVENTS – WORKSHOPS, for example:  Memory and Aging presented by COSCO.   Please check the calendar and feel free to call the centre for more information (604)684-8171.

Wonderful news of both the DENTAL PLAN and PHARMACARE:  Both of these free programs are national that require registration and should you need help or more information with either of these plans, give us a call at (604)684-8171.

A reminder that June is a time to show appreciation for the seniors in our lives and recognize their valuable contributions to our communities. It’s also an opportunity to raise awareness about the challenges that seniors face and the resources available to support them.

In this edition, I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you our wonderful staff – these are the people who, along with the help of the board, drive the centre to its current successes and our future.  Welcome!
