The Burlington Seniors’ Centre (BSC) is now open after having undergone several changes to the facility over the past few months.
These changes were implemented in order to improve traffic flow, accessibility and the overall experience for visitors.
The BSC is now offering some indoor programs and will be following all safety guidelines outlined by the Province and Public Health.
Some changes to the facility include more space in the reception area for visitors entering and exiting the building, an open-concept office, improved accessibility and wider counter service areas and new outdoor raised garden beds on accessible patio surface, built in partnership with a donation from Club 9.
Additionally, funding by the Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility and the City of Burlington helped to partially support the new Hearing Loop system.
The system, which has been installed throughout key locations in the BSC, is an assistive hearing technology that enables individuals who use hearing devices to connect with a signal that amplifies sound within their hearing aids or handheld receivers.
Customer Service staff and Program Instructors will also wear microphones to transmit their voices to the receivers or hearing aids. Hearing Loops will be available in most community rooms as well as the reception area.
