Directory a resource for assisting County seniors

Prince Edward Community Care releases 14th edition of the Information for Seniors Directory, shown here with executive director Debbie MacDonald Moynes.

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association has published the latest issue of its Information for Seniors Directory, designed to assist seniors, their families and caregivers in finding resources to help seniors maintain their independence and stay in their homes.

“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,” says Debbie MacDonald Moynes, executive director.  “We’re grateful for the New Horizons funding that made this edition possible.”

The printing of the 14th edition was made possible by funding from New Horizons for Seniors, a program of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada. It is available free of charge at the Community Care for Seniors offices in The Armoury, 206 Main Street, in Picton.

“Seniors and their caregivers are encouraged to stop in and pick up a copy of this valuable resource,” adds MacDonald Moynes.

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association offers services 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 by the Ministry of Health & 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.

    I agree with Gary Mooney. An online PDTformat of this book would be very useful to seniors with little or no transportaion.

    It would be good to have a copy of this directory available online in PDFformat, for those seniors who have Internet access and for their families, and in particular family members not resident in the County.
