Directory that is available free to seniors in The County.

The partnership between two not-for-profit agencies in Prince Edward continues to flourish with the announcement that the next edition of the Information for Seniors Directory is now available for seniors in The County.

With funding provided by Hospice Prince Edward (HPE), the Prince Edward Community Care was able to print more copies of this popular directory.  A board member from Hospice called Community Care to ask for copies of the booklet to provide as part of their volunteer training manual.   When they found that it was out of print, funding from the Trillium Foundation was accessed to pay for the printing costs.  Wendy Davis, president of Hospice Prince Edward, says "we are a privileged agency to have such a practical, positive partnership with Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors, one that benefits the community we serve.  All information pertaining to Hospice Prince Edward are up to date and included in the revised directory".

"We had our summer student update all the information", commented Debbie MacDonald Moynes, executive director of Community Care. "The partnership we have with Hospice Prince Edward includes our commitment to provide transportation, Meals on Wheels and other Community Care services to their clients.  Working together makes us stronger", continued MacDonald Moynes.

The booklet has 84 pages of useful information for seniors who reside in Prince Edward County including listings of community and health services; fitness and recreation; long-term care homes; seniors clubs and other organizations.  The directory is provided free and is available for pick up at the Community Care office in The Armoury, 206 Main Street, in Picton or from Hospice Prince Edward.

Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors has been supporting seniors to live independently at home since 1977.  Services include Meals on Wheels, transportation to medical appointments & shopping, noon-time dinners for seniors, help with forms, reassurance programs, homemaking, yard work and home maintenance.  The agency is partly funded by the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care through the Local Health Integration Network and supported by donations and community fundraising efforts.
