We have some good news to report from the Snug Cove House Society. While we continue to work toward our vision of supportive seniors’ housing here on Bowen, we’ve also been developing an online Seniors’ Hub. We’re delighted to announce that the Hub is now launched and can be found on both the Snug Cove House and Caring Circle websites.
The Bowen Island Seniors’ Hub is a one-stop information source for Bowen seniors and their families, friends, and caregivers. The Seniors’ Hub is a directory of programs, practitioners, businesses, and services serving Bowen Island seniors. The Hub includes helpful information on health, housing, financial and legal issues, education, volunteer opportunities, and much more. Relevant resources from the North Shore, Lower Mainland, and provincial and federal governments have also been included.
We’re planning to update the Hub regularly; web information changes frequently, so we’ll be doing our best to ensure that we stay current.
Snug Cove House has partnered with the Caring Circle to deliver the Seniors’ Hub. For ease of access, a link to the Hub conveniently appears on both our websites. Snug Cove House is tremendously grateful to the Caring Circle staff and board for their support.
The Seniors’ Hub arose from ideas from Carol MacKinnon and the late Ida Goodreau. We’re grateful to Jordyn Zirk, Sue Ritchie, and Denise Lawson for their good work on this project. Many thanks also to the Bowen Island Community Foundation for funding the Seniors’ Hub; this reflects the foundation’s commitment to seniors as part of a vital and sustainable community.
This is an important time for the Snug Cove House Society; watch your mailboxes, the Undercurrent, and our website for more news and information about our plans over the next few weeks.
