The government of Saba is inviting all senior citizens and caregivers who are involved in the care of a senior family member, neighbour or friend on Saba, to attend a gathering on Sunday, February 8, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm at the Eugenius Johnson Centre.The goal of this meeting is to bring seniors and caregivers together to discuss their views on the needs of senior care on Saba. The input of senior citizens and caregivers is crucial to determine what is going well in the provision of care and support, and in which areas improvement is needed.
The results of this meeting will be used to draft a plan for a seniors’ centre where senior citizens can gather for activities and meals, and for the expansion of home healthcare and other support provided for senior citizens. The content of what will be organised at the seniors’ centre will be based on the wishes of the seniors, therefore their input will be highly appreciated.
With this in mind the government is encouraging as many seniors and caregivers as possible to attend the event on Sunday. Snacks and other refreshments will be provided during the meeting. Those who require transportation may call tel. 416-6045
