In these challenging times, the City of Mississauga is focused on supporting our older adult community. The City has launched a new web page that provides guidance for older residents and their caregivers to help meet their needs.
“Our older adult community is one of the most vulnerable when it comes to COVID-19,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “The City’s new web page provides easy to find, at-a-glance information for older adults and caregivers. This is something that our older adults asked for and I am pleased that we are able to provide this resource to help meet their needs, enhance their well-being and improve outcomes.”
Residents can find information on symptoms and prevention, health and wellness and key emergency contacts. The web page also provides links to online Library services and free online videos, workouts and other resources to help older adults stay healthy while practicing physical distancing.
A printable information sheet is also available on the web page.
Anyone who may not be able to access the web page is advised to ask a friend or family member to assist.
