Organizations across Fundy Royal are creating opportunities for seniors to continue to make significant and valuable contributions to their families, communities and country. However, there can be barriers for seniors to access these programs and opportunities. The Albert County Museum and Tele-Drive Albert County recognized these issues in the Albert County area and are working together to ensure seniors in the area can access their programming.
The Albert County Museum is receiving $4,924 to purchase equipment to increase and invigorate their exhibits to allow seniors to help with the exhibit expansion by sharing their knowledge and conducting research.
Tele-Drive Albert County is receiving $20,000 to provide transportation for seniors to attend workshops, computer courses, yoga classes, and transportation to the Albert County Museum to promote social participation of seniors. These two organizations are helping seniors stay active and involved in their community.
