Susan Smith, Executive Director of what was formerly Kemptville and District Home Support, has announced a name change for the organization, as well as the cancellation of the Big Band Dinner and Dance fundraiser.
“In 2020, with a global pandemic changing many parts of our lives, we crave connection – something solid and simple. A helping hand or kind voice is a welcome addition to a day, and for years, Kemptville and District Home Support has provided a range of supports for seniors, and adults living with physical disabilities.
“Our name change to Seniors’ Community Services is part of our ongoing efforts to make sure the people who can benefit from our services know who we are and how we can help them.” Serving the Municipality of North Grenville and surrounding area, clients can access its many services by phone or at a new Internet web address – www.seniorscs.ca
Our mission remains the same – providing support to help clients remain independent, living in their homes. Appropriate precautions are taken by our staff and volunteers to protect clients from the COVID-19 virus as Seniors’ Community Services continues to offer:
Meals on Wheels
Transportation to medical appointments
Foot Care Clinics
and – the well-received recent addition of Seniors’ Centre Without Walls – a free telephone-based activity program, implemented to keep seniors connected while coping with the COVID-19 pandemic. (It’s new! Ask us how it works!)
If you or someone you know could benefit from a helping hand, contact Seniors’ Community Services. Our clients are our reason for being. Let us help you live well in your community.
CANCELLATION OF 2020 BIG BAND DINNER AND DANCE:
Organizers and the Board of Directors of Seniors’ Community Services announced today that the 4th annual fundraising Big Band Dinner and Dance, which had previously been re-scheduled in hope that the risks associated with COVID-19 would not interfere with the event, is now officially cancelled.
“We want to acknowledge and give a huge thank you to the local businesses and service clubs who signed on as sponsors, donors, and supporters for this fun dance night,” says Bill Forbes, President of the Board. “Along with our incredibly generous group of individual donors, this financial support makes Seniors’ Community Services run smoothly and helps people live independently. We are so grateful when they step up and say, ‘I want to help.’”
We invite your questions about the changes we have made to simplify and strengthen access to our services. Thank you for helping our organization spread the word to future clients and volunteers.
