SUNDRE – A local society on a mission to improve the quality of life for the community’s seniors is receptive to suggestions and ideas on what kinds of programs and services might benefit Sundre’s elder population.

Sundre Seniors Protected and Respected Under Community Engagement (S.P.R.U.C.E.) hosted an interagency meeting on Jan. 30 to explore options alongside potential partners at the Seniors Drop-in Centre located on the north end of the Sundre Supportive Seniors Living centre.

Jane Atkins, the society’s co-chair, said on Feb. 15 during a follow-up interview at the drop-in centre that a wide spectrum of different organizations that serve seniors were invited to participate in the brainstorming session.

Attending the roundtable discussion were representatives from more than a dozen groups, including the Sundre West Country Centre, the Sundre and District Museum, Sunde Home Care, the Greenwood Neighbourhood Place Society (GNP), the Sundre Community Van Society, the Royal Canadian Legion Sundre Branch #223, the Sundre Municipal Library, the Sundre Hospital Futures Committee as well as the RCMP and the Peaks to Prairies Primary Care Network.

Among the service areas discussed were: physical and mental health; safety and security; social support; physical environment; personal well-being; as well as social environment and engagement.
