The Fraser Health Authority and its partners have put together a list of seven important phone numbers every senior should know.
The list includes all necessary emergency numbers for any health issue, whether it is mental, physical or simply needing extra help with everyday tasks.
Spokesperson Jacqueline Blackwell says having all these numbers in one place can help reassure families of seniors that their loved ones know who to call.
“People who support seniors – whether that’s family or friends or people who come into contact with seniors day to day, even if it’s in your apartment building – I think knowing that those resources are out there has been a tremendous support to those seniors as well.”
