Resource centre celebrates seniors

Workshop offered on preventing falls, hosted by Island Health physiotherapist

National Seniors Day is coming up and we’re celebrating it early here at the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association in the Seniors Centre.

Everyone welcome for tea and cake on Sept. 20, from 3:30-4 p.m.

Information sessions are starting back up this month.

The first one is titled Stay on your feet: A fall prevention workshop.

Physiotherapist Brian de Leeuw from Vancouver Island Health Authority will present it Sept. 20, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the Ladysmith Seniors Centre within the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association, 630 – 2nd Ave.

Everyone welcome and please RSVP to or call 250-245-3079.

Refreshments will be served. These sessions are made possible through financial support of the Island Savings Endowment Fund and the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association.

The Coffee Drop-In is ongoing from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays and Fridays.

Come in and have a visit, along with coffee or tea and cookies, with our friendly and personable volunteers.

Remember, we are here for you should you have any problems with government-issue forms, rent, transportation problems for medical appointments, inability to grocery shop for yourself, loneliness or if you just need someone to talk to.

For more information, please contact the seniors office at 250-245-3079 or visit the website at
