Monthly Program for our Seniours

In News by Ismail Hagi-Aden

We are pleased to announce the next session for the AMA Seniors program. This is an opportunity for our seniors to get to know others of the same age group and have a great time.

Our goal is to have this program run once a month. The monthly program will include many activities such as trips with a chartered bus to various points of interest throughout Ottawa. Seniors will be taken to museums, community centres, shopping malls and more. We will also have orientations on different topics targeted towards the elders, given by professionals.

This project is intended to not forget about our elders, but rather embrace them, and try to assist in helping to fill their days and giving them an opportunity to get to know others of the same age group.

In our last seniors program in early February we had a presentation by Service Canada for the benefits and programs for seniors. It will help more seniors get benefits that they are entitled to or maybe benefits for their spouses.

The presentation included all of the following topics:

– Federal government benefits

– Programs and services for your spouse

– Information for all to prepare for retirement

Light refreshments and lunch were served during the event. The attendees benefitted greatly from it and are looking to the next seniors event.
