With shorter daylight hours, take care to be more visible when out walking: wear light-coloured clothing or reflectors, use signal-controlled intersections and marked crosswalks whenever possible, recognize your own limitations (perhaps wait for the next full crosswalk cycle), and finally, realize that poor weather reduces everyone's visibility. It's important to be SEEN and stay SAFE!

Fraser Health wants to ensure you know about the six important phone numbers all seniors in B.C. should have:
HealthLinkBC's non-emergency phone line for medical and health advice or information.
1-855-412-2121 Fraser Health Service Line
Call this number to find out whether you qualify for home support for personal care, home care nursing, palliative care, day programs for adults or respite services for caregivers.
604-268-1312 Better at Home
Call this number to get help with home tasks like housekeeping and transportation to appointments.
Call this number if you need a service and aren't sure what it's called or where to find it.
Your personal doctor's phone number. If you don't have a GP, a walk-in clinic may be a good option so have a number handy for the closest one.
