The new Community Paramedicine  Wellness Clinics will be hosted in collaboration with the District’s Seniors Programs’ WISE Clubhouses.  The clinics will feature education, disease prevention information, assessments, and assistance in linking patients to resources available in the community.  

The   District’s “WISE Clubhouses” program for seniors will be held on:

  • November 1st- MacTier Memorial Arena (9 Haig St) 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
  • November 13th- Gravenhurst (175 Lofty Pines Dr) 1:45 - 3:45 p.m.
  • November 21st- Milford Bay Community Centre (1020 Beaumaris Rd) 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
