Marion Eidsness

MarionEidsnessMarion Eidsness is the host of the “Seniors in our Communities” program that is on air each week at Valley Heritage Radio, 98.7 FM. It is aired Tuesday during the noon hour.

Marion draws on her experience of working in the senior service sector and managing volunteers in community agencies both in Saskatchewan and Ontario to come up with the ideas for this show.

Marion and her husband moved to Renfrew in 2011 to be closer to their two sons and their families who live in Ottawa.  A weekly visit with their two grandchildren is another highlight of her week.

One of the benefits of working on this program, Marion says, is the knowledge she gains personally and the great people she meets that offer community support services throughout Renfrew County.

Seniors in our Communities

This program has been on air since 2007.  It is brought to our listeners by 10 of the community support agencies serving seniors and individuals living with disabilities in Renfrew County.

The intent of this show is to highlight topics of interest to seniors throughout our listening area.  Recent shows have included information on emergency preparedness, powers of attorney, wills, pre-planning for your funeral, services offered by Bereaved Families of Ontario, Canadian Hearing Society, gardening tips and living with Arthritis.
