June is Seniors Month! This is a month in which we celebrate and honour the enormous contributions that our elders have made in this beautiful land that we call home. This year’s theme is “Stay Safe, Active and Connected,” and our government is keeping seniors safe during the pandemic by improving programs that serve their unique needs.
Our government knows that inactivity and social isolation can negatively impact older Ontarians. That is why we have increased, and expanded, the programs available for our aging parents, family members, friends and neighbours so that they can stay healthy and socially connected in our communities despite the necessary public health measures currently in place.
I am proud of the programming my office and I have offered throughout the pandemic dedicated to our seniors, including offering grocery assistance and care packages for homebound seniors, as well as producing our very-own seniors newsletter to ensure seniors in Mississauga Centre had the latest information on programs and resources offered by our government.
With this in mind, our office is offering a number of virtual events to better connect with seniors in our community, which we invite you to register for below. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via telephone at (905)-890-1901, or by email at [email protected]
I look forward to seeing you at one or more of our events. Take care and stay safe!
