Support For Seniors
in Community Living
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Services for Seniors program has had to alter the services they can provide the community to keep in accordance with the provincial recommendations.
We are offering seniors grocery, pharmacy or mail delivery and
also delivery of takeout meals from TT's Return during the lunch hour. Please note these services are for seniors or those needing to self-
Our meal program will be resuming on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 and will be available for delivery only to senior's residences. There will be no congregating. The meal days will be temporarily changed and will be served Tuesdays and Fridays within Manitou, and Wednesdays at the La Riviere Lodge. Meal prices remain the same at $9.00 and there is no cost for delivery.
During this time we are unable to have face to face visits with our clients, so there are no transportation services available. All our deliveries will be "drop and go" services.
Under direction from the RHA we are unable to ask our volunteers for help. If you are interested in helping with deliveries, please call us to offer so we are not asking you!
We will be attempting to contact all our local seniors just to touch base with everyone and see how you are all faring with the new social distancing recommendations. If we have not yet contacted you, and you would like a call, please let us know at 204-242-2241 and we will add you to our call list.
Thank you to all our seniors for their patience and understanding during this time. We look forward to the future when we can resume serving our community to the fullest!
