Building Our Age Friendly Community

summary image

Our top priority for our Seniors in Whitewater Region is to build an Age Friendly Community that encompasses as many programs and services that we can.  It is important to make mention that building and creating this community can not be fully accomplished without truly hearing what your needs are.  The slogan "Nothing About Us without Us" rings true, we need you to let us know what matters to you.  

We would love to receive your insights, comments and suggestion to what would make Whitewater Region the very best Age Friendly Community that it can be. 



Our non urgent transportation program offers flexible and affordable transportation to help individuals unable to access other means of transportation to local and out of town medical appointments. There is a fee for this service.
