In 2020, seniors will have one number to call for information, advocacy and referrals regarding Alberta government services.
The Office of the Seniors Advocate will be combined with the Office of the Health Advocates to address seniors’ concerns more efficiently.
Beginning Jan. 2, 2020, Alberta seniors, their families and service providers will be able to access information and referrals on issues of concern at a centralized organization. Staff and resources from the Office of the Seniors Advocate will be transferred to the Office of the Health Advocates to support this change.
The Alberta Health Advocates can be reached at 780-422-1812 or online at albertahealthadvocates.ca
This transition aligns with the completion of Seniors Advocate Dr. Sheree Kwong See’s secondment from the University of Alberta and the expiration of her appointment as Seniors Advocate on Dec. 31, 2019.
