In partnership with the Government of Alberta, we continue to administer this program by offering support and assistance to local seniors in accessing Alberta Government benefit programs.
Alberta benefits include Alberta Seniors Benefits Program, Special Needs Assistance for Seniors and Seniors Home Adaptation and Repair Program, as well as Dental and Optical Assistance for Seniors.
Many of the benefits of these programs include the reimbursement and subsidy for appliance replacement, medical related expense reimbursement, home repair loans and assistance with dental and optical reimbursements.
FCSS Lamont County Region also assists local seniors to access and liaise with Federal Government programs such as Old Age Security, Guaranteed Income Supplement and Canada Pension Plan, to ensure local seniors receive maximum benefits. Our staff are also available to review documentation and assist to complete applications and required forms for a variety of other programs and services as needed.

Event locations include the Town of Lamont, Town of Bruderheim, Town of Mundare and the Village of Andrew.
The focus is to provide information, entertainment, and complimentary meals as our way to say, “Thank you for all that you do!”
These programs provide a weekly coffee break and networking opportunity for local seniors. FCSS continues to facilitate these year-round groups County-wide.
For seniors who are looking for a safe, effective way to enhance their physical health and overall wellness, the stretching, breathing, and meditation practices of yoga can be a great solution.
