Notice of Life After Fifty Temporary Closure

Notice of Life After Fifty Temporary Closure
Posted March 13, 2020
Life After Fifty has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping our members’ health in the highest priority.  Health Canada has identified that older persons and persons with pre-existing medical conditions (such as hypertension, heart disease, or diabetes) are considered HIGH RISK and appear to develop serious illness more often than others. Additionally, Health Canada has recommended that persons who are considered high-risk practice “Protective Self-Separation” once the virus is circulating in the community.
 
As of the time of this notice, there are no confirmed cases in Windsor-Essex. However, Life After Fifty will assist our community in slowing the spread of COVID-19 by taking the proactive measure to protect our members and volunteers by closing to the public effective Monday, March 16. Foot Care clients who currently have appointments booked will have those appointments honoured. For these individuals, we will implement active screening procedures and will make confirmation screening calls to all foot care clients.
 
We are looking for creative ways to keep members engaged and connected. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for further details and updates.
 
In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the progress of COVID-19 in our community and keep members informed of a re-open date in the following ways:

West End Art Project 

 

Life After Fifty has received $20,000 to coordinate a community art project funded by the Gordie Howe International Bridge Community Benefits Plan

This project will embark on a creative journey to connect our region to the potential of the West End - exploring our past, present and future through public art.

Public art has a diverse meaning but is meant to be physically and freely accessible to the public. Public art can embrace art in all forms and is widely understood to have many benefits to communities like:

  • Creating a sense of identity, uniqueness and civic pride

  • Improving the quality of the overall environment by involving the community

  • Celebrating place, historical heritage or particular characteristics relating to the site where the work will be displayed

Goals and objectives

To engage local youth and the surrounding community in the development of a representative public art project that displays the culture and heritage of West Windsor.

This project aims to enhance civic pride as understood by its diverse communities, reflecting the importance of the area from the people living and working in the West End.

 

Engaging Youth, The Region + Beyond

  • Documenting the Process

  • Seeking public participation in the creative process 

  • Gathering feedback regarding site and artist selection 

  • Providing continued promotion and education of the significance of the work

The West End Art Project will accomplish the following:

Public Consultation

Throughout the project, the voices of West Windsor residents will be captured through surveys and public viewings, intending to explore and identify the theme and location of the intended art piece(s).
