Seniors' Program

The Seniors' Wellness Program offers peer support and referrals, as well as wellness workshops, clinics and education to seniors and their care-givers.

Trained senior volunteers provide free and confidential one-to-one support to help meet life’s challenges. The volunteer counsellors provide compassionate listening and encouragement to help people get more in touch with their own feelings, gain a clearer understanding of their situations and difficulties, and make the decisions necessary to solve their own problems.

Better at Home Program provides non-medical support to seniors who wish to continue to live independently. The basket of services we offer: friendly visiting, friendly reading, friendly voices, transportation, light house-keeping, yard work and simple home repairs.
