Project: Foot Care for Seniors

Vital Sign: Health & Wellness

Total Grant: $19,134

James Bay Community Project logoThe James Bay Community Project Society will partner with Capital City Volunteers to provide simple and complex foot care to approximately 200 low-income seniors in the City of Victoria over a two-year period. Making this service easily available will help increase the health and well-being of low-income seniors. It will also help to prevent and reduce the negative impacts of the development of serious health challenges (e.g. foot ulcers due to diabetes) and assist seniors to retain their mobility, quality of life, and ability to participate in community activities.
