What if I told you something as simple as a raised toilet (yes, toilets!) can make a huge difference in some seniors being able to leave their homes to socialize, and to participate fully in the community?
On Tuesday April 3rd, I was pleased to share the news that Club 60 in Antigonish received a federal grant of just over $5,400 through the New Horizons for Seniors Program.
The money is being used for:
an updated fridge, which will come in handy for their various social events,
a new heat pump adding to the year-round comfort, and lowering their power bill, plus
new heightened toilets – making the restrooms more accessible, comfortable and easier for seniors who use the facility.
As part of the visit, I was pleased to join in on a quick tai chi session that was taking place, and I hope to drop by for a game of 45s sometime!
