MLA to host Seniors’ Tea on Tuesday

MLA Norm Macdonald wants to help local seniors keep their issues on the top of the political agenda by holding a Seniors’ Tea next Tuesday.

“My office continues to receive numerous calls from seniors in Revelstoke asking for my assistance,” he said in a statement released Wednesday.  “Issues range from the level of care in residential care facilities to the increasing cost of living for people on fixed incomes.

“It is important for seniors to realize that they can ask for help.  My office is able to provide assistance with issues relating to health care, pharmacare, housing, residential care and assisted living to name a few.”

Macdonald said he will host a Seniors’ Tea on Tuesday, Nov. 10, at the Community Centre from 1 pm until 3 pm.  The tea will give seniors and their families an opportunity to talk to Macdonald and his staff.  Light refreshments will be served.
