Lifelong Learning Programs:

SCOA offers a variety of lifelong learning opportunities for older adults. We regularly offer art and computer classes at an affordable price, and we offer a variety of educational workshops.

Century Club: An association of older adults who have reached the age of 90 years or older. We meet six times a year, provide free transportation and entertainment, and have a regular newsletter that members receive. Plus, members can add their stories to our Memory Book and receive a free copy of this book upon becoming a member.

Caregiver Information and Support: This program provides resources, support and education to caregivers to prolong the independence and dignity of older adults. Resources are available in our office, online at www.saskatooncaregiver.ca, or by phone at 652-4411. We have multiple educational workshops throughout the year for caregivers.

Bus Buddy Pilot Project: Volunteer Bus Buddies are available to teach older adults how to use the Saskatoon Transit system. Learn how to plan your route, get on and off the bus, how to pay and much more. The best part is... it's free!

MenTorship: Supporting independence for older adults who are caring for a spouse or have recently lost a spouse through educational programs. Men's cooking classes and Women's 'On My Own' workshops prolong independence through learning and developing new life skills.

A Free Wellness Clinic is held on the first Tuesday of every month from 9:00-12:00 at SCOA's . Get your blood pressure checked by a retired nurse, and visit our 'Ask a Pharmacist' and 'Ask a Nurse' stations with your medication and health related questions. And of course, coffee, cookies and visiting to follow.

Drop In Program: A free program held September to June, on every third Wednesday of the month from 2:00-3:30. Entertainment, education and socialization are all available. We also plan bus trips to nearby locations!
