A & O: Support Services for Older Adults – Santa to a Senior Program

A & O: Support Services for Older Adults is excited to partner again this year with Home Instead’s Be A Santa to A Senior Program. Due to the pandemic and increased feelings of isolation and need, we have surpassed 2,700 requests. This program is more important than ever before for many isolated and/or in need older adults living in Winnipeg. We need your help to let older Winnipeggers know that they are not alone this holiday season!

Different ways you can make a difference:

  1. Donate as a group – your groups monetary donation will enable A & O to purchase small gifts for other older adults in the community
  2. A & O can provide a group of gift requests that your workplace, community, or family can purchase directly for older adults in the community (purchases can be made online).

Please call (204) 956-6440 or visit www.aosupportservices.ca for more information!

For further information about A&O programs and the current quide, see Resources…A& A: Support Services for Older Adults on this website

 

Doctors Manitoba has started a patient awareness campaign as physicians have reported very concerning decreases in patients seeking care for regular concerns during the pandemic.  Here is the link to the campaign:

Home Exercise Program

HSSI has uploaded a 16 page Home Exercise Program booklet in PROGRAMS.   The drop down menu item is titled Home Exercise Program.

It is important to stay active and healthy in this time of self isolation.  Without being able to access HSSI programs, Encore Fitness or MHRD Rec programs, this will provide you with a home plan that you will be able to carry on with, even after you are able to get back to normal.
