March 2024 – 11th annual Okanagan Embrace Aging Month
Embrace Aging Month is held every March to raise awareness of available community resources and to connect seniors and their families with these resources. During this month the Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention, University of British Columbia Okanagan; Interior Savings Credit Union and Interior Health, partner with other organizations to host free online events, workshops, information sessions, and activities targeted at seniors and their family caregivers to age successfully.
Embrace Aging Month provides education on issues relevant to seniors and their family caregivers; creates awareness of services, resources and educational opportunities; and connects seniors with service providers. The initiative provides opportunities for seniors to make connections, and engage in dialogue with other seniors.
