The Chez Nous Seniors Home in Moose Jaw will provide free meals to support vulnerable seniors, still living in their homes, who are at risk of not being able to obtain proper nutrition because of COVID pandemic issues.

Moose Jaw, April 8, 2020

The Chez Nous Seniors Home, a charity owned facility in Moose Jaw, has identified a population of seniors in Moose Jaw that are at risk of not being able to enjoy proper nutrition. These are seniors who live in their own homes independently, but who still require the support of family members or neighbours to assist them for basic daily needs such a meals, laundry, prescription pickups, etc. The COVID pandemic has severely restricted social movement and thus for various reasons these family members or neighbours are no longer able to provide this crucially needed support and thus putting seniors at risk.

Chez Nous is pleased to announce that we will make and deliver meals to this category of seniors during the COVID pandemic…for free! Our commercial kitchen will simply make extra amounts of the same nutritious food we serve to Chez Nous residents. The food will be packaged in disposable containers and delivered to the doorstep of a resident by Staff volunteers. There will be no physical interaction in order to keep everyone safe.

“As a charity, we are excited to do our part to support the Moose Jaw community during this extremely difficult period”, said Adrian Bohach, President/CEO of Chez Nous. “The COVID phenomenon has identified a segment of vulnerable seniors with issues that previously were “under the radar”. We are committed to make our resources available to assist vulnerable seniors to stay in their homes as long as safely possible. We will continue to monitor the needs of seniors in Moose Jaw and area and may potentially announce additional supports as needed”.

Chez Nous has already announced that it will make available up to 6 residence units to families who may have an elderly family person who needs a safe place to live during the pandemic.

For more information, interested family members should contact Manon Desruisseaux at 306-693-4371.
