Seniors’ Lounge

(Mon-Wed from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Room 5)

The mission of the Seniors’ Lounge is to offer a safe, open and comfortable space for West End elders to socialize with old and new friends.

Pop in for a few minutes or a few hours. We’d love to see you.

Seniors’ Out-trips

While the West End is arguably one of Vancouver’s prettiest neighbourhoods, the opportunity to get out of the skyline’s shadow is a welcome one. Elders’ out-trips provide participants with the opportunity to take part in diverse outdoor and cultural programming in the Greater Vancouver Region and to get to know each other in the process. In recent years elders have visited the Buddhist temple in Richmond, the Grouse Mountain gondola and have enjoyed a salmon barbecue at Ambleside Park.

Please call 604-683-2554 for upcoming trips.
