Lake Country Health Planning Society is one of five partner agencies within the Central Okanagan that has the privilege of launching this project. Developed in response to the steadily increasing population of older adults, Wise & Well was created to help seniors maintain a good quality of life. As people age, they often experience a variety of changes, including retirement, possibly reduced social circles, changes in their physical and/or cognitive abilities, as well as possible emotional changes. Wise & Well aims to address any isolation, feelings of loneliness, or possible mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, by helping connect older adults with local people and community resources. Volunteers are matched up with participants, meet with them once a week and help them become involved and connected in their own community. Activities are based on participant interests and have the ability to expand as the volunteer and the senior get to know each other. Activities may include going for coffee or lunch, attending local plays, trips to the Seniors Centre or group outings with other Wise & Well participants. We are currently recruiting seniors for this program. We welcome all referrals, so call our office today! 778-215-5247. All calls are confidential. Office hours are Monday to Thursday, 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
