COVID-19: Seniors Outreach Strategy (SOS)

Woman speaking on the phone

We have been busy re-visioning and re-designing our current Seniors programs to meet the emerging needs of seniors in our community today.

COVID-19 has changed the way we deliver our services – and the result is a community that is even more resilient and determined to meet the needs of our most vulnerable.

The Seniors Outreach Strategy will reach out via phone calls placed by staff and volunteers to create connections and facilitate the provision of resources.

We are now able to provide on-going friendly phone calls and check-ins, essential grocery shopping supports and medication pickup, occasional meal delivery, and can provide a variety of information related to financial needs, online social and recreational opportunities, and health information.

Phone calls will help to alleviate loneliness and isolation and ensure that our seniors feel connected every step of the way.

We want to express our gratitude to all of our adaptable funders at this time who have helped us to quickly respond to these emerging needs.

Staying active together
