news image

October 11, 2023: To help maintain seniors’ well-being, independence and safety in their homes and communities, 15 community organizations have received funding to help them expand their services. Six initial grants were awarded in July 2022 for projects that are now operating and nine additional grants were awarded in June of this year.

These non-medical services range from social and emotional supports to help with everyday tasks such as housekeeping, yard and snow removal, transportation to and from appointments, and meal delivery. Together with home care and other community services, this expansion will help address the increasing complexity of needs as Albertans age.
