|A word from the Executive Director
As we prepared to hit send on the year-end e-bulletin, we learned that COVID-19 outbreaks and the threat of the new Omicron variant mean physical distance and gathering limits are returning and mask requirements are being tightened across Nova Scotia.
We’d like to thank the many individuals working hard on the front lines and behind the scenes to keep Nova Scotians safe. We wish to recognize volunteers who show up to support neighbours and strangers alike, offering everything from a hot meal to a friendly call, helping individuals stay connected. We want to offer comfort to those who are struggling and remind them resources are available – a call to 211 night or day can help find a path forward.
We also want to celebrate the resilience, share the strength, and elevate the voice of older adults, who know from past challenges that this too shall pass.
Stay well everyone. Have a safe and peaceful holiday season. We will get through this, together.
- Helen MacDonnell
