Providing Support To Aging Adults 
Senior Services is a division of the Community Development Department of the City of Medicine Hat. Through outreach and internal programs involving the coordination of approximately 100 volunteers involved in over 35 programs, Senior Services provides facility management, partnerships and numerous support programs as well as a comprehensive food services component including approximately 60,000 Meals on Wheels annually.
