Good Morning,
 
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. 
 

Red Willow Café

While you can no longer come in to enjoy a meal, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on Chef Lucia’s amazing cooking!

Christmas Lunch & Dinner planned for December 18th has been cancelled. All those who made a reservation for this meal will be contacted by Lila. 
 

Bus Services

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.
 

Thank you for all your support. We are reminded daily of how great a community we are a part of! 

Please stay safe, stay healthy.

COVID IMPACT SURVEY

These are uncertain times. We have all had to change the way we do things. Help us identify the services and supports needed by the citizens of St. Albert who are 50 years and over; by sharing your thoughts and experiences about how COVID has impacted you. This survey will be anonymous unless you request a follow up call and all responses will be rolled up for analysis. The St. Albert City Council, Seniors Advisory Committee and Community Services Advisory Committee have all expressed a great deal of interest in the results.
 
If you would prefer to do the survey over the phone you can call the St. Albert Seniors Association at 780-459-0433 Ext.  and request a call back.

Thank you to the New Horizons for Seniors Program whose grant to the St. Albert Seniors Association made this survey possible.
