Sage is excited to announce a new initiative presented by Servus Credit Union in collaboration with the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues, Age Friendly Edmonton, and communities supporting healthy aging in their neighbourhoods: Seniors Saturday!
The first Saturday in October will be Seniors Saturday, an annual day of free events with information and resources about aging well in community at various locations across the city.
On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the inaugural Seniors Saturday, five concurrent community events, free and open to the public, will connect seniors to opportunities, information, resources, and each other while fostering and sustaining neighborhood connections.
Community Hosts for the inaugural Seniors Saturday include:
Each venue will host a different presentation on a topic of interest to seniors. Topics include living well with frailty, advanced planning, preserving keepsakes while downsizing, ways to identify elder abuse and neglect, financial literacy workshops with information about preparing for the future and protecting yourself from financial abuse, exploitation and fraud and more.
In addition to informative presentations by knowledgeable and engaging speakers, each venue will host an hour of coffee and connection with complimentary refreshments – a great opportunity to meet people, share stories and celebrate the International Day of the Older Person!
