Dear Members,
As usual, I would like to start with some exciting news.

 

ROCK N ROLL DINNER AND DANCE

First time ever, Westend Seniors Activity Centre (WSAC) is hosting a Dinner and Dance Fundraiser, featuring 7 piece Rock n’ Roll Band! Like what we always promise you, joining our WSAC family is like going to a senior high school. You will not only learn new things every day, but more importantly, have fun every day. I would like to invite you and your friends to come and join us for this amazing event; also, since this event is open to the public, I ask you to help us spread the word among your social networks. This event is one of our major fundraising events for the Centre; therefore, on behalf of the WSAC Team (i.e., Board, Staff, & the Fundraising Committee), I thank you for your generosity and kindness. See you on Saturday, Feb 29 at 5pm.

“FOOD FOR FIT” PROGRAM
Another exciting news is about our Community Cafe Program. We will be launching our “Food For Fit” program in Mid-February, which features pre- and post-exercise food combos that will be available all day long. These combos focus on providing the “nutrient-dense” foods, which contain vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats. As you know, we have a very capable Community Cafe Program team, which includes Tracey (Manager), Desirae (Chef) and Thomas (Nutritionist). They will design the healthy and sugar smart combos that will keep you hydrated, energetic and strong.

 

CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION
After sharing you with these exciting new initiatives, I regret to inform you that we have to cancel the February 22 Chinese New Year Celebration due to the concern of the coronavirus spread. Since this event will involve ICAN Seniors Association that has many Chinese seniors attending and will provide the entertainment, both WSAC and ICAN have decided to cancel the event to minimize the odds of the potential virus spread. Both organizations thank you for your understanding and we will offer joint programs and events in the near future.

The year of 2020 has not brought us a lot of positive news. However, Westend Seniors Activity Centre is here to provide program and service to enrich and brighten your life. We believe Connecting with Others Never Grows Old, Keeping Active Never Grows Old, and Happiness Never Grows Old!

 

HAIDONG’S RESEARCH CORNER
According to Alberta Health Service, in Alberta, nearly 50% of adults admitted to hospital are identified as malnourished. Most remain malnourished at discharge. The majority are also elderly and thus may be frail or at risk of becoming frail, and face additional challenges such as social isolation, cognitive impairment, poor appetite, barriers to access to health and social services and so on.
