The ABCs of Caregiving for Seniors
Caregiving is complicated, especially as we age.
There are a wide-variety of issues well beyond the actual giving of care that need to be addressed. We are producing a project that is funded by the Ontario Government that helps families deal with many of these complex issues. As part of our project, we are producing a full day of FREE workshops in King, City Ontario. Here are the details:
Date: Saturday October 13, 2018

There is very limited parking at the front of the King City Seniors’ Centre on Fisher St. There is however a large community parking lot on Doctor’s Lane which is one block west of Fisher off of King Side Road.
This community parking lot is directly across the road from the post office. There is a marked path from this parking lot to the King City Seniors’ Centre. Look for the King City Senior’s Centre sign facing the parking lot and follow the path up a short hill. The path is on the right hand side of the centre and the entrance is at the front. The front of the building is on Fisher Street, the back of the building can be reached by the parking lot on Doctors Lane.
