Carebridge Community Support holds successful Seniors’ expo
Carebridge Community Support was pleased to connect with more than 800 neighbours at the North Lanark Seniors’ Expo on September 5th. This 9th annual event was held at the Almonte Community Centre.
“It was great to see community members and clients from across Lanark County,” notes Carebridge CEO Robert Eves. “The event gets bigger every year and it wouldn’t be possible without our amazing organizing and on-site volunteers.”
The Seniors’ Expo included more than 80 exhibits, entertainment and a speakers’ corner – all designed to help us build healthier communities for seniors.
“A highlight of the day was the announcement of our new name, says Bob McGaraughty, Carebridge Board Chair. “Mills Community Support is now Carebridge Community Support. We have a vision of local communities across Lanark County where everyone feels welcome, connected, cared for and engaged. Our new name says it all.”

As well a big thank you to our co-organizers: The Alzheimer Society Lanark Leeds and Grenville, North Lanark Community Health Centre, Orchard View by the Mississippi and V!VA Barrhaven Retirement Community.
