COVID-19 UPDATE, PLEASE READ
Dear Valued Clients
At Saskatoon Services for Seniors, the safety of our clients and staff members is our first priority. With the Situation as it stands today we have made the tough decision to close effective March 23 2020. We have made this decision to help keep our clients and staff safe during this difficult time. We continue to monitor the ever changing situation and hope to re-open on April 6th 2020. Although the plan is to re-open on April 6th we will continue to monitor the situation and adjust our return date as needed. We hope everyone is staying safe, and isolating when necessary. Together we will all get through this. As we firm up a return date we will reach out to our valued clients to let them know when we will be re-open and look to get your services back up and running again.
