Seniors and persons with disabilities can expect to receive a one-stop directory book in the coming weeks listing just about every service provider they are likely to need.
And the book has been compiled by the one-woman team of Pauleter Stevens. She might be registered blind but that didn't hinder her in collating all the information from innumerable organisations across the Island and putting their details into an easy to read and understand directory.
In only six months she completed the mighty task which will see thousands of others benefit directly from having instant access to so many resources and services - everything from Meals on Wheels to Talking Newspapers and a raft of health groups and support agencies.
Patrice Minors, Minister of Health and Family Services, led the praise for the work that has produced the new Directory of Services for Seniors and Persons with Disabilities.
Around 7,000 of the directories are being posted in coming weeks and there will soon be audio, Braille and larger print versions available. The directory has been compiled by the Health Promotion Office and the National Office for Seniors and the Physically Challenged and has been prepared for distribution by the Opportunity Workshop.
Anyone who does not receive a copy of the directory within the next few weeks, and feels they should, is asked to contact the National Office for Seniors and the Physically Challenged on Victoria Street to pick one up or have one mailed out.
Questions about the directory or those wishing to be listed in the 2006 version should make contact by calling 292-7802.
