At Jubilee Community Care we believe in being there for you, even when we are not supporting you in person in your own home. As such, Jubilee is now delivering online services to keep you connected, healthy, active, and to improve your sense of wellbeing.
We have partnered with local businesses who provide specialist teaching and classes online on a range of topics, all at a low cost.
The online services are open to Jubilee clients as well as seniors in the community, with time at the end of each session to discuss the day’s content and build new friendships if you wish to stay online.
To take part all you need to do is connect to the classes on your computer or tablet with the instructions provided once you register. It’s easy.
Two classes start in mid-July so register as soon as possible. The classes include:
♦ Diet and Nutrition Education with partner Food Solutions: Learn how to stay healthy, meet your nutritional needs and continue enjoying meal times as you age. Topics include your changing nutrition needs, malnutrition and hydration, easy convenience foods, how to eat well on a budget, modified diets and chronic health, and more.
