Seniors - Older Adults

Seniors – Older Adults

We have a dynamic growing population of older adults in Southwest Winnipeg and I am honoured to be able to work with so many organizations focused on improving the quality of life, health and well-being for so many. I am focused on working to improve accessibility, mental and physical health, recreations and improving the many needs of our older adult community. This page highlights some of the projects we are working on – and of course always welcome recommendations and insight.
