We are grateful for the funding from the Rotary Club of Calgary. With their contribution, we were able to introduce a new exercise program for our Supportive Living residents. Our Active Aging team participated in specialized training for older adults, which was delivered by the AFCLA. We were also able to purchase resistance bikes, which we have incorporated into our programming.
Silvera thanks you!
Hillhurst Rebekah Lodge (#116) and Alberta Encampment (#1)
It is because of the Rebekah’s and Oddfellows that our residents are now able to enjoy the gift of music. With their generous donation, we were able to purchase iPods and Bluetooth speakers to benefit our Active Aging programs at each of our Supportive Living communities.
Silvera was honoured to be chosen as a recipient in the 2016 Calgary Herald Christmas Fund. Despite the challenging time our city is facing the fund was a huge success, raising $881,522.38 from 2,587 donors. Our share of the proceeds were $80,466.25, which will support our work with our Community Resource program, which provides support to residents in our Independent Living communities.
