Message from Square One Seniors Wellness Services (SOSWS)

Mother Nature is here to wrap her arms around you with warmth! The severe weather has alerted us to the importance of preparing for unexpected emergencies, like having a telephone that works when the power is out.

At SOSWS, we are here to wrap our arms around you with health and wellness programs and services. Take control of your physical and mental health and prevent potential difficulties and complications. For instance, do you need dental care but don't have coverage? Now is a good time to check out what we have to offer.

Come join us for our Annual General Meeting on June 26, 2014. Find out what we have accomplished in the previous fiscal year. Look ahead to October 17, 2014 and mark your calendar for our Annual Walk-a-Thon. We will walk in the mall!

SOSWS is here for you. All the best to you in health and wellness,

~ Esther Williams, President
~ Laurie Docimo, Resource Development Manager
