We wanted to take a moment to update you after the most recent announcement by the Alberta government. As per the restrictions, we will be closing our doors to the public for the next four weeks, beginning Monday December 14th. This does not mean we are closed. We are still here for you. The seniors in our community have always been, and will continue to be our number one priority!
We know that these announcements have changed many plans for the holidays, as we cannot gather with those outside of our households. Many of our traditions will look quite different. Here at S.A.S.A we want to make sure no one feels alone during the holiday season. Did you know we have a “friendly phone call” program? If you would like a friendly phone call from one of our amazing staff members please reply to this email and let us know! We would love to connect with you!
We also have a E-Pen Pal program that we launched early on in the pandemic. If you would like to connect with one other person by email, reply to this email and we will do our best to connect you with another senior in our community!
As we have mentioned before, we are here for all seniors in St. Albert. If you require any assistance reply to this email or call 780 459 0433.
If you have not already, please take a few moments to do our COVID-19 Impact Survey for seniors in St. Albert. This will help us get a better understanding of what needs are most prevalent in our community! To take part of the survey click here. If you have already completed it thank you!
With the new restrictions we wanted to highlight what is happening in the following areas.

December 11th will be the last day the bus will run until January. If you are in need of a ride to an urgent medical appointment please contact our Seniors Services Coordinator at SeniorServices@stalbertseniors.ca and she will assist you in your transportation needs. Because we will be working with external service providers, advance notice is needed to make arrangements for rides. Please keep this in mind.
Foot Care Clinic
Our Foot Care Clinics are cancelled until further notice. Anyone affected will be contacted.
Chef’s Choice Frozen Meals Program
Our Chef’s Choice Frozen Meals Program is still available. To view the menu click here. If you have questions or would like more information about this program please contact Trudy at BusinessManager@stalbertseniors.ca or call 780 459 0433 ext. 7.
