<li>Alberta Health Services Warns Of Vaccine Scam
<li>AHS is receiving reports of a phone scam where Albertans over 75 are told they can book their COVID-19 immunizations for a fee. AHS will never ask for payment. Please hang up immediately and report the call to the non-emergency police line at 780-423-4567.</li>
SouthWest Edmonton Seniors Association (SWESA) is one of Edmonton’s newest seniors’ centres and we invite you to join us! SWESA is member-driven, working in concert with community groups and partners. Our programs and services empower older adults in southwest Edmonton to be active and feel part of a vibrant community of seniors.
Through a number of community locations, SWESA offers:
• Instructional Classes and Drop-in Activities (e.g., fitness, arts and crafts, informational talks and workshops, games and cards, coffee and chat)
• Services (e.g. access to home support services, book shops, a puzzle exchange, volunteer opportunities).
• Events and Activities (e.g. monthly luncheons, choir, bus tours, book club)
DUE TO SAFETY PRECAUTIONS DURING COVID 19, SWESA IS CLOSED FOR THE TIME BEING.
Due to the Alberta government announcement of new public health measures, which include a ban on indoor fitness programs, SWESA was closed Friday November 13. We plan to open and resume programming as soon as we can do so safely.
This year has been a challenge as our usual wonderful gala event was just not possible. SWESA’s operating funds come from grants; membership and program fees; and a variety of fundraising efforts. Fundraising ensures our programs are affordable, accessible and can grow to meet the interests of people 55+ in southwest Edmonton. Can you help support SWESA this year?
