Are you willing and able to help out members of your community who may need assistance over the coming weeks?
The Hub is seeking volunteers to help seniors and those who are socially isolated in our local community. There are many elderly and seniors who live alone and don't have a family to help them during this difficult time.
All assistance will adhere to social distancing and hand hygiene to protect everyone involved. Please fill out this short survey to register to help and we will put you in direct contact with residents in your area who request help.

It enables us to age well in our own homes for as long as possible; as meaningfully as possible; and as inexpensively as possible". The second is in Victoria Park, Western Australia – Connect Victoria Park. Short videos on both are worth watching-…..
