Sheila McDonald, Better at Home and Prince Rupert Senior Centre
Thank you to new member, Sheila McDonald for stepping in at the last minute to be our speaker on the 17th!
Sheila is the Coordinator of the Prince Rupert Senior Centre and the Better at Home Program.  This program is funded by United Way.  They provide services to seniors that support them in staying in the own homes.  Some of these services are: light housekeeping (a challenge in a pandemic); taxi vouchers; grocery and prescription pick up and delivery, lawn cutting and weekly delivery of baked items and frozen soups.  Better at Home also provides a weekly dinner for approximately 20 at Wayne Place.  Services are provided for a fee that is based on the senior's income level.  They do not have a waiting list at this time and are serving 58 clients with about 80 receiving food support.  They are also providing meal support three times a week at the Wildlife Shelter.
