Housing Committee: Planning continues on our proposal for a Seniors Supported Living Residence and more affordable housing choices for Islanders who need or want to live in the Q Cove village area. We just applied for a CMHC Seed Funding grant to do a Need and Market analysis and financial plan for the project. For details or to volunteer call Maureen:285-2221.

The Transportation program has openings to drive seniors to appointments or shopping. To become a volunteer driver (with flexible assignments based on your availability) call Diana at 285-3630.

Seniors Outreach Worker, Marie Sheran:285-3950 visits seniors who want more information on our programs or who are recovering from illness or sometimes feeling a bit isolated.

Quadra Home Meals: This program provides weekly meal orders to Island seniors or care-givers unable to cook regularly and to anyone dealing with illness or recovering from surgery. These tasty, nutritious meals are cooked specially for the program by the Gowlland Harbour Resort Chef. The cost is a nominal $5 per meal. Choices range from soup/stew with bun, to a small entree to a full meal with fish or meat, vegetables and a starch. Food preferences, allergies and special diets can be accommodated. Meals can be reheated or frozen for later use. Pick them up at the Community Centre on Wednesdays between 11:30am and 12 noon. If needed, the meals can be delivered by our volunteers. To order by Sunday noon call Marie:285-3950 or Lynda:285-3205

Friday Lunch: For everyone over 55 - please join us Fridays at 11am for armchair exercises with Ann Lawrence or at noon to 1:30pm for lunch (by donation) and a speaker in the Lower Level at 1281 West Road (Quadra Bible Church). Food prep volunteers are welcome at 9:30am: Karen 285-3477.

Community Connections Centre: Looking for a rewarding volunteer activity that suits your skills, interest and available time – whether it's one event or ongoing? Does your group need volunteers? Want to know about programs and services on Quadra? After April 21 watch for our new sidewalk sign at the Cove Centre and drop in Wed.-Sat. from 11am-3pm. Let us help you connect: Call 285-2255.
