Seniors health fair in Slocan Valley

On Friday, Oct. 14 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., area seniors are invited to the Passmore Lodge for the First Annual Seniors Information Health Fair.

Organized by the Slocan Valley Seniors Housing Society, the free event promises to be a day devoted to connecting seniors with the wide range of services available to them – and all with a local connection.

A wide range of resource people, service providers and health practitioners will be on site to answer questions, lead demonstrations and more. Seniors will learn about valuable tools such as: Lifeline and Medichair; what help the Alzheimer’s Society and Red Cross have to offer and more.

Health practitioners will offer information centers about massage, foot care, chiropractic, acupuncture and yoga for seniors and more have yet to confirm.

Why not drop in for a coffee and treats and socialize with others while discovering what the community has to offer?

The program is being made possible through the volunteer efforts of the SVSHS with the hope this can become an annual tradition.

“There are always new seniors moving into the area,” said JoAnn Chatten, event organizer. “We want to show them that we can care for them as they enjoy our wonderful community.”

  • The Passmore Lodge can be found on the Passmore Frontage Road off Highway 6 in Passmore. For more information you can call the Lodge at 250-226-7136.
