Thank you for visiting the website of Seniors Serving Seniors Association of BC. Our group was formed in 1981 by a group of committed individuals who recognized that seniors would greatly benefit by a one-stop shop for information on services. Over time the Seniors Serving Seniors database of services for seniors has grown to include website addresses and unique programs that reflect the evolving needs of today’s senior.
A steady flow of Canadian retirees relocating to Victoria and long time residents reaching age 65+ is creating a focus on seniors’ services in the Capital Region. Victoria with a population of 330,000 has one of the highest senior populations in Canada with 18.4% over 65 years and 6.5% over 80 years of age.
With a significant and growing population of seniors we believe it’s essential that a comprehensive listing of services is maintained and navigation support is available to support their health care needs and healthy living goals.
In addition to Information Services, Seniors Serving Seniors operates programs where dedicated volunteers support seniors in transition and make a huge difference in their lives during a difficult time.
Last year, approximately 75 volunteers contributed over 5,500 hours to the community.
We hope you find our website useful. Please contact us for more information.
