Help in a time of uncertainty
Safe Seniors, Strong Communities is a program that provides individualized support and resources to older adults living at home who are isolated because of COVID-19. Seniors can call 211 by phone to register for the program. Seniors are matched with screened volunteers in their community who want to help.
Available services include: grocery shopping and delivery, meal or food delivery, prescription drop off and pickups, as well as phone wellness checks and/or virtual friendly visits.
Caring for our family & friend caregivers
The Penticton Caregivers Support Program is dedicated to improving the lives of people who are caring for an adult family member or friend with complex health needs.
A caregiving family includes the caregivers and the person receiving care. The program's professional family counsellor and peer supports provide individual counselling, group supports, and advocacy for the emotional, physical and financial burdens of caregiving.
