Seniors Advisory Committee
The DCCA is looking for volunteers to join its Seniors Advisory Committee
The population of seniors in the Dunbar community is growing, especially seniors who are living alone. Currently, seniors in this community are under-serviced. The seniors’ services at DCCA need to grow to provide for this important component of our society. Some of the support programs in the neighbourhood have been discontinued due to reduced funding over the years. The City of Vancouver’s Seniors’ Advisory Committee recently published an extensive research report on the substantial and negative impact of social isolation and loneliness amongst seniors. The research found that it is important to offer a wide variety of programs to encourage seniors to leave their isolation. The New Horizons for Seniors Program grant would allow DCCA to enhance the programming and the facilities for our important goal of providing a safe, rewarding and learning experience for local seniors.
