Sooke Region Communities Health Network is excited to bring The Seniors' Centre Without Walls (SCWW) to our local residents aged 55+. The SCWW program is completely free and provides a variety of virtual programs. It is like having a Seniors' Centre in the comfort and safety of your own home. Programs can be accessed through phone call or Zoom.* *Some programs will be most effective with video access. There are free tutoring services available for those who would like to learn how to access Zoom and who have a laptop or mobile device. Please contact email@example.com for more details.
