Recognized annually across Alberta, Seniors’ Week is an opportunity to show appreciation for older adults and the contribution they make to our community.
From June 7-13, local seniors can enjoy free virtual events to promote wellness and connection, while also helping seniors’ access and gain confidence in using technology to stay connected.
Registration is required for all events. Visit cochrane.ca/SeniorsWeek or call Cochrane FCSS at 403-851-2250 for details.
These events were made possible through the participation of many local organizations and businesses and a generous donation by Mayfair Diagnostics.
