Celebrate and Support Seniors in Alberta – Tip Sheet
Government of Alberta
September 16, 2020
Description / Summary
Seniors are a vital part of our communities. As parents and grandparents, mentors and friends, employees and employers, they make a difference in our lives. It is important that we continue to recognize, celebrate and support seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Government of Alberta offers a tip sheet that provides suggestions on how Albertans can continue to celebrate, support, and keep seniors safe while respecting public health measures in place.
October 1 has been proclaimed Day of Older Persons in Alberta to:
formally recognize and acknowledge older Albertans and their contributions to their communities
raise awareness about seniors' interests and concerns
address misconceptions about older persons and aging
Alberta has declared a public health emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that doesn't mean not interacting with our seniors.
