Senior mental health help

by Steve | Comments Off

Loneliness and social isolation are major social, health and quality of life issues for older people. Did you know that about a million Canadian seniors describe themselves as lonely or socially isolated?  HelpAge Canada is taking action to change this situation, by launching a campaign called:

“Seen Your Citizen”.  It is a Multicultural, Multi-faith and Intergenerational day of Sharing
WHEN:    Thursday, October 1, 2015
TIME:      10am – 4pm
WHERE:   First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa, ON (Lots of free parking and bus accessible)

As a volunteer with HelpAge Canada I am helping to spread the word to people who may want to attend this important event.  This would include seniors themselves, people who provide services to seniors, and people who care about and for seniors.  Some of you may have already have been in contact with Natalie Fraser, in which case this is just a friendly reminder.

I have attached a brochure with more information about the event, and hope that you will share this information with any of the seniors who reside in your communities.  Attendance is FREE, and there will be something informative and entertaining for everyone.

Warm regards,

Linda McDonald


Registration is not required, but if you do plan to attend and have accessibility needs, please let me know at 613-222-5633 or email me atlinda.mcdonald.chrp@gmail.com .  If you have pamphlets from your community organization, that you’d like put out at the event, please contact me and I will give you further information.

Results from Speed Radar Down White Alder

by Steve | 3 Comments

Due to overwhelming number of complaints about the number of people braking traffic laws in and around White Alder, the city agreed to put a Speed Radar between Spartina and Bufflehead on July 27th between the hours of 7am-5pm.

The survey below indicates that 323 cars present, 119 of them were driving OVER the speed limit of 50km/h with one car going +70km/h on this stretch.

This is ridiculous. Children play in our neighbourhood. Please drive slowly on our residential streets. It will take you an extra 2 mins to get out of the neighbourhood by doing 40.

If you witness someone breaking a traffic law – it is important that you report it to Ottawa Police.
