Elder Service Corps

Elder Service Corps helps older adults turn their life experience into community and social impact, right here in Calgary. Elder Service Corps is a unique 6-month program for adults age 65+ looking to use their life skills and experience in a structured and productive program of activity. Every meeting the corps group engages in discussion and planning involving topics like conscious eldering, community development, and challenges and opportunities seniors face. Through this training program the group  selects, develops and implements community projects with support from the Carya Team.

 2017 dates:

  • January to June 2017 (Community Group in Bowness)
  • April to September 2017
  • June to November  2017

 

Community Financial Engagement

Carya’s Community Financial Engagement programs help older adults increase their financial resiliency. We help people find new ways to connect and share their strengths as they earn or save money.

Our Relationship with Money: A Community Initiative for Older Adults:

One of the challenges that comes with aging is a new reliance on your savings – a shift to becoming a spender rather than an earner. This change can have a powerful influence on the health and well-being of older adults. Join us for this 24-week program that explores your relationship with money, and presents opportunities to make a difference in your community.

  • Next group: Feb/March 2017
