Aging in Place Programs Have Been Supporting Seniors For 12 Years
Article submitted by Jennifer Lalonde,
Executive Director, Ottawa West Community Support
Aging in Place programs has been supporting seniors in our community for more than 12 years. These programs are designed to help seniors stay happy and healthy at home. A mix of programs and services are offered in 11 Ottawa Community Housing communities throughout the City.
If you are a resident in one of these buildings, you are likely familiar with AIP and all it offers. Maybe you have spoken to our helpful and resourceful community outreach coordinators, participated in our information sessions or attended events like one of our outdoor music dates or our Canada Day Party.
Those who are familiar with us already know the value of our programs. For those who don’t know us yet, we can’t wait to show you just how fun and useful we are to have around!
