A Bennett Health Care Centre program will receive more than $17,000 in federal funding Wellington-Halton Hills MP Michael Chong announced Wednesday. The funding provided through the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP) will go toward the Memories to Talk About Program. Through the program, volunteers and residents in the Bennett Centre participate and create a memory book to increase communication abilities. "Canada's new government is committed to enhancing the social well-being of seniors in communities by encouraging them to share their skills, wisdom and experience," said Chong. "Projects like the one I have had the pleasure of announcing today, help reduce the risk of social isolation among older adults by promoting their ongoing involvement in the community." NHSP provides grants to support a range of community based projects across Canada that encourage seniors to contribute to their communities through social participation and active living.
