From comedic laughs to safety tips from the RCMP, the 22nd Annual Seniors Wellness Conference offers a full day of information sessions based around seniors care and well-being.

Organized by a volunteer group of seniors stretching across the County of Wetaskiwin area, the conference takes place June 6 at the Millet Agriplex; registration begins at 8:30 a.m.

Everything from the presentations to the speakers to the information booths are chosen by the organizers for the benefits they will bring attendees, with the help of Wetaskiwin Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) manager Linda Mueller.

“I’m just there to help them get their wishes,” said Mueller.

This year’s featured special guest is comedian Ken Valgardson.

Programming for the popular event includes, but is not limited to: a presentation by pharmacist Rod Bleakney, origin yoga, two Alberta Health Services presentations, an RCMP senior safety presentation with Wetaskiwin RCMP Cst. Holly Porterfield, as well is information display tables.

Lunch and refreshments are also provided during the conference.

“The food is always a good thing,” said Mueller, who adds the organizers want to ensure there is a social aspect to the conference so attendees can relax and visit with one another.

“They’re very committed to making sure they provide a conference with great information and an opportunity to connect,” said Mueller. “It’s very well done,” she added.

Mueller says last year the conference was attended by approximately 160 individuals from the area and expects this year will see another high turnout.
