Abbotsford celebrated BC Seniors Week over the first week of June to recognize the contribution of seniors to the community.
The City of Abbotsford partnered with the Abbotsford Division of Family Practice (ADoFP) and Fraser Health to publish a presentation with local family physician Dr. Shelley Dhillon-Bhalla and Lori Blain, clinical pharmacist at Fraser Health.
The video covers the importance of regularly reviewing medications and promoting long-term health.
The presentation was created in response to feedback from local seniors and is an area of focus in the ADoFP’s Older Adults with Complex Care Shared Care project.
“The video highlights the importance of community members working with their family doctor and pharmacist to support their health and well-being,” Dhillon-Bhalla said.
“The presentation includes steps and tips for reviewing medicines. I encourage seniors to watch the video and share with friends and family.”
There is also a video promoting raised garden beds for older adults (or anyone) who need to sit while gardening, presented by Tabor Village, to inspire a solution for those who may have limited mobility.
