Seniors’ Community Services has been part of the North Grenville Community for 42 years. Although many know who we are and what we do, our community is growing and we thought this a great time to (re) introduce ourselves. We’re more than just a service provider; we’re a community. Plus, we host a vibrant array of social activities to foster connections and friendships. Come for a visit and see what we are all about, and how we can support you or a loved one.
Exercise Programs: We understand the importance of staying active as we age. That’s why we provide a diverse range of exercise programs tailored to seniors’ needs. Whether it’s gentle yoga or stretch and strength group fitness classes, we’re here to keep you moving and feeling your best.
Meals on Wheels: Nutritious, delicious meals delivered right to your door. Our Meals on Wheels program ensures that no senior goes hungry and that everyone has access to balanced, home-cooked meals.
Volunteer Transportation Services: We know that mobility can be a challenge for some of our seniors. Our dedicated team of volunteers provides safe, reliable transportation to medical appointments and essential errands, ensuring that you can access the care you need.
Friendly Visiting: Social connections are vital for emotional well-being. Our friendly visiting program connects volunteers with seniors who may be isolated or in need of companionship. Our dedicated volunteers provide a warm and friendly presence, engaging in conversations, sharing stories, and building meaningful relationships. These visits not only brighten the day but also offer valuable social interaction and emotional support.
Diners’ Club: Our Diners’ Club is a delightful dining experience for seniors in our community. It’s a chance to savour delicious meals in the company of friends. We believe that good food and good company go hand in hand. These gatherings offer not only a chance to enjoy tasty meals but also create a space for seniors to connect, share stories, and form lasting friendships.
Euchre, Cribbage, Skip-Bo and Yak and Yarn: Social activities at the centre are fantastic ways to have fun and engage with others. Our popular Monday Euchre games provide an opportunity for seniors to come together, enjoy a friendly game, and socialize. What is your favourite activity?
SCS is a registered charity, and relies on fundraising to expand our reach and impact. With more funds, we can serve more individuals, launch new initiatives, and address pressing needs within our community. Our September Photos in the Park event raised close to $3,400 this year, and we are so thankful for the generosity of the Ralph and Maureen Phillips Family Foundation and the participants who joined us for a great day. Next up is our 3rd Annual Holiday Wreath and Planter Fundraiser. Special guests joined us for this fun drive-through last year, and we have invited them back for more candy cane lane fun. To order a planter or wreath, please call 613-258-3203 or email [email protected] by November 7th. Pick-up will be Tuesday, November 14th from 2 to 6 pm at 215 Sanders St. Thank you for helping us make it another success this year.
