On Thursday, February 20, the members of Halton Region’s Elder Services Advisory Committee (ESAC) gathered together at the Halton Regional Centre to celebrate the launch of the 2014 Seniors’ Directory.
The directory contains a comprehensive list of contact information for a range of programs and services available to seniors in Halton. It is a valuable tool that connects seniors, their families and caregivers in our community with services like housing, financial assistance and transportation.
Providing seniors with services that support and contribute to a safe and healthy community is an important priority for Regional Council.
With the province estimating the number of seniors in Halton will increase from our current number of approximately 66,000 to more than 130,000 by 2031, Halton Region is committed to ensuring quality services are in place to meet the needs of seniors now and in the future.
Since 1988, the directory has served as a user-friendly reference guide that highlights the extensive range of services available to seniors in Halton. The latest directory has been enhanced to include links to web addresses where readers can access more detailed information about the services they need.
I’d like to extend my thanks to ESAC for all they do to support seniors in our community and ensure that Halton a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
