CARP PEI October 2011 Newsletter

Casey McGannon has become Chair of the CARP Chapter of PEI. Outgoing Chair Barbara Sindon stepped down for health reasons.

The Board thanked Barbara for her hard work and and all the organizing she has done since taking over as Chair. Barbara helped raise the profile of CARP through her outreach efforts.

Casey McGannon has been the local owner of Home Instead Senior Care Prince Edward Island since 2006. She is a gerontologist with a background in working with individuals with Alzheimer disease and their families, and also with end of life care. She brings with her a passion for appropriate care for every senior. Casey has a heartfelt desire to work with seniors in their communities, and that’s why she has chosen to serve seniors and their families right here in P.E.I.

Casey says her most immediate job is to make sure CARP PEI’s Annual General Meeting goes well. “I’m excited about what we have organized for CARP members on PEI and I hope we can attract some new members as well.”

Casey will also be representing PEI in Toronto at the 2011 CARP AGM and ZOOMER conference at the end of the month and says she hopes to come back with all sorts of good news and ideas for the upcoming year.

Casey reminds everyone to take the time to renew your CARP membership!  It’s easy to do – by mail, by phone or online at  Be sure to mention Chapter 21 when you renew! Every Chapter 21 membership returns a portion of the membership fee back to this Chapter.

Caesy also reminds us the election is in the history books, so it’s time to approach our newly elected/reelected MLAs with our concerns and ideas for supporting older Islanders!
