LOUISDALE, N.S. —

Issues that matter to seniors will be the focus of discussion at a day-long seminar in Richmond County.

The event is called Seniors Issues Matter and will take place Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Louisdale hall.

More than 150 people are expected to attend the event that includes a morning panel discussion with representatives from four provincial organizations (Community Links, Federation of the Federation of Senior Citizens and Pensioners of Nova Scotia, Caregivers Nova Scotia Association and the Seniors Advisory Council of Nova Scotians) with mandates that serve seniors.

The seminar is an expanded version of the regular We Care Days offered in Louisdale on a monthly basis by the Fleur-de-Lis Seniors Club.

“This Seniors Issues Matter day is a full day and was born from the need to clarify what groups in the province work for seniors and their issues, how they differ and how we can work together to achieve our shared goals,” said organizer Debbie Samson.

The afternoon portion of the day includes a presentation on the province’s Action Plan for an Aging Population by Simon d’Entremont, deputy minister with the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors, and Bill Berryman of the Seniors Advisory Council.
