This program also offers transit orientations and escorted day trips on public transit. Kootenay Seniors offers safe free delivery of groceries and other items by screened volunteer drivers.
  • Seniors check-ins. We provide bi-weekly or weekly telephone check-ins with seniors to ensure they are staying safe, staying home, and checking whether they need anything. Anyone who wants to be included for senior check ins is welcome to call or email.
