On November 6, Mayor Nenshi proclaimed February 6 as “RISE Sunday” in Calgary . Calgarians were encouraged to reach out and make a difference in the life of a senior neighbour, family member or friend.
Calgary Seniors’ Resource Society (Calgary Seniors) is an innovative organization that strives to keep seniors healthy, independent and safe in their homes as long as possible. For over 20 years, we have provided a depth of support that creates meaningful and effective change in the overall well-being and quality of life of vulnerable seniors in our city.
What makes us so unique is that we effectively combine specialized and registered social workers with volunteers and volunteer programs that work hand-in-hand; not only do we assist in a crisis, but we provide ongoing assistance to ensure seniors are supported appropriately long-term.
