The Wei Wai Kum First Nation honours and respects its Elders and supports them with a variety of programs and services – including those that facilitate fellowship with the Nation’s youth and with Elders of other Nations.
Services and programs for Elders’ include:
- Transportation to medical appointments and shopping
- Crafts activities
- Wellness programs
- Monthly lunch meetings and special occasion lunches
- Registration for and transportation to the annual Elders Gathering
- Subsidized housing

The Nation defines Elders as members who are age 65 or older. When space permits, programs are open to members who are age 60 and over.
