Surrey, BC September 15, 2020 – Seniors Come Share Society launches a new online platform, SHARE (Socialization, Health, Awareness, Recreation and Education) to continue providing programs and services to older adults in the community despite the restrictions of COVID-19. SHARE can be found at sharevirtually.com.
“We have been adapting how we provide our programs and services since the start of the pandemic,” says Louise Tremblay, Executive Director. “And our clients and the community have been adapting with us. An online platform was the next logical step, and the community agreed.”
The new platform will provide access to some of the recreational adult day program activities previously done in Come Share’s facilities, as well as social circles, cooking classes, caregiver and family services to name a few.
“Meal delivery was one of the first needs we addressed with the enforced restrictions placed on us by the pandemic,” adds Tremblay. “Many people relied on us not only for the social and physical activities we provide, but also for our meal programs. We are currently delivering over 200 meals a week to seniors in the community.”
For more information on SHARE, please contact Nisa Moman at 604-536-9348 or [email protected]. If you or someone you know needs any of our other services, please call Simren Dhillon at 604-536-9348.
For over 40 years, Seniors Come Share Society has provided older adults and their families with services, programs and resources necessary to remain educated, engaged and, most importantly, empowered members of their community.
