It’s surprising to me how many people still don’t know about all the help available to seniors in the Okanagan. Perhaps it’s because many seniors do not have a computer or have not yet embraced using it for more than playing mahjong! Well look no further. Here is a list of the resources and support services available to you. Please pass this information along to those not yet online.
