Make a Friend Day

So  often, especially during these cold winter months we feel cooped up, and alone.  One of the best ways to cure that is to get out and meet some new friends.  There are many valuable resources in Lethbridge where seniors can go to get out of the house, join in on some fun activities, and meet new friends.

The Lethbridge Senior Citizen Organization is a very valuable resource here in Lethbridge for our seniors.  They have just published the February LSCO Times with all sort of classes and groups that  may peak your interest.  Getting involved in a group or two is an excellent way to meet new people that share some of your interests.  The LSCO also has a fantastic dining room with great meals and a great price so you can get together and have coffee with your new friends.

The Lethbridge Association for the Blind LAB also hosts monthly dinners and barbecues for their members.

Your Local Church will often offer social events such as a luncheon or pot-luck dinner.

The Norbridge Senior Center is another great resource for seniors in our community to get out and make a new friend.  In fact, they are having a Chinese New Year Buffet coming up this Friday February 16th.

The Royal Canadian Legion is another great place to gather and meet new friends.  You do not have to be a veteran to join, and they have a list of events that including things like Crib, Shuffleboard, Coffee  and more.

 

Planning to get out and get involved in your community is a great way to stay active and healthy not to mention it will help shake these winter blahs away.  Many of these places will offer transportation however if you do need a ride, you can always give us a call and we’d be happy to get you there!

We would love to hear from you….  where do you go to get out and meet new friends, as well as get involved in something fun?

 

With Warm and Respect,

Janine gets it Clean

As always, Linda and I are blessed and grateful to be able to serve the Lethbridge and surrounding community.  It brings us joy to find new and better ways to serve our current clients and be able to help new clients that may need us.

Saying that, we are pleased to Welcome a new member to our team.  Her name is Janine, and she is all about getting it clean!

Janine is available to do things such as:

  • Light house cleaning on a biweekly or as needed basis.
  • Laundry
  • Meal prep

 

Part of our mission at Sunshine Senior Services is to help seniors enjoy living life at home longer by providing assistance in areas where it is needed.   Many seniors are not able to physically do some of these tasks anymore.

Did you know there may be help available to you to get it done for you?

With the Alberta governments Special Needs Assistance for Seniors (SNA) Program, you may be eligible to apply for reimbursement for some of the costs of cleaning, and other house management tasks.

If you are a low income senior and have a medical note from a Health Professional specifying the mobility/health condition that does not allow you to perform these tasks, you can apply for this assistance.  The following image is information from the Alberta Seniors and Housing website that goes into greater detail:

 

 

Please contact us if there is anyway that we can help to answer your questions, or provide this service for you.
