Covid-19 Updates and Activities

The Pat Porter Active Living Center and Serving Seniors Inc. are concerned about the Covid-19 virus and the effect it can have on the majority of the population we serve. We have decided that it is the best interest of everyone if we stop all non-essential services until further notice.

This includes all day and evening programs, coffee corner, Circle of Friends and meals served at the centre.

Meals on Wheels and some of our outreach programs will continue but you must call first as the doors will remain locked. Staff will be onsite from 9-4.

Because of the nature of this virus and the way information changes so quickly we are meeting on a weekly basis to ensure we are able to provide the best services to people in a safe manner.  All updates will be sent out via email, Facebook and on our website. If you have questions call us at 204-320-4600.

If you or a loved one are concerned about the effects of being alone or without the centre for an extended period of time and would like us to call and chat for a bit please let us know so we can do so.

We are in this together!

Thank you for understanding. Stay safe and trust that our staff are taking this time to plan some great programs in the future for you all!
