BC’s Parliamentary Secretary on Seniors health is back on the Island after a big meeting in PEI.

Parksville Qualicum MLA Michelle Stilwell represented the province at the 16th annual gathering of Federal, Provincial and Territorial leaders Responsible for Seniors.

Stilwell says it was a great opportunity to discuss ways to support vulnerable seniors, and help them remain independent for as long as possible.

She says BC is already doing a lot on that front through the Better at Home program.

In the Cowichan Valley, Better at Home is run through Volunteer Cowichan.
