Volunteering with Seniors!
Throughout this pandemic, it is well known that seniors in our province have been impacted in particularly harsh ways by COVID-19. Perhaps one of the most difficult realities for many older adults is the on-going isolation they are experiencing. The pandemic has revealed so much about the loneliness, vulnerability and resilience of our seniors.
During the pandemic Welcome Inn has seen a have seen a 245% increase in the number of seniors who are connected to our visitation program.
As restrictions in Ontario begin to ease, we are excited to announce that we are expanding our Community Visitation Program, by introducing a “life navigation” component, with a specific focus on food security, safe housing, positive mental health, and peaceful relationships.
