Community Senior Services offer community-based programs for seniors that promote health and well-being and assist seniors to continue to live independently in the community while maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle. We welcome organizations within our region to apply for funding for these programs.

Following are services offered throughout Southern Health-Santé Sud by a variety of community agencies:
