Wellness for Seniors (WFS) of Perth and Huron has been funded through the Home and Community Care Support Services South West LHIN (HCCSS) to create a wellness program based on the enhancement of existing programs and the creation of new ones. WFS programs encourage individuals to manage their own health.
Wellness programs have been created to provide a safe, inexpensive avenue for individuals to remain active and healthy. The WFS programs bring wellness, education, and health monitoring to community dwelling individuals in rural and isolated areas.
WFS aims to promote and sustain improved health for older adults through a standardized best practice model of programs in local ommunities across Huron-Perth. All services will be provided within the overarching themes of education, exercise, and health promotion/monitoring.
