Connecting rural seniors

In a constantly changing world, learning never ends.

A new educational program in rural Flamborough connects seniors to helpful learning opportunities and one another.

The program is facilitated by Flamborough Information & Community Services and targets isolated, vulnerable, financially disadvantaged and disabled seniors. Holding the sessions in proximity to areas where rural seniors live is an important consideration, since many seniors are uncomfortable driving distances and look for program opportunities close to home.

The program fills a gap for rural seniors who do not have easy access to opportunities for learning and social engagement.

An HCF grant supports eight one-hour sessions, held from January to October, at locations throughout the community, and will be offered by local subject matter experts. Planned topics include wills, scams and healthy living.
