A community health network, aimed at bringing together people and resources for care takers of older adults and seniors with complex behavioral issues, is coming to Queens County.
The group is called “MOSAIC” which, stands for Meeting the needs of Older adults and Seniors Affected by complex behavioral issues In our Communities.
Liz Fraser, the project coordinator, says the network started in May 2013.
“The whole point of creating the network is because we saw a need to respond to meet the needs of seniors and older adults in Lunenburg and Queens with complex behavioral issues, things like dementia, addiction, mental health issues,” says Fraser.
The network is made up of paid care providers as well as family or friends who are unpaid caregivers to seniors with these issues.
The event will mark the official launch of the network and information on the network’s activities, membership and benefits will be available.
The meeting is set to take place on Sept. 17 at the Liverpool Fire Hall from 1 – 4 p.m.
The event is free to the public and attendees can RSVP for the event at www.mosaicnetwork.ca however RSVPing is not necessary.
For more information on the network, anyone can call Liz Fraser at 902-521-2213 or email email@example.com
