Social Connection – Toronto, ON
More than anything, hope is found in community. Many seniors struggle to find friendship and community and rapidly evolving technologies can be intimidating and inaccessible, further inhibiting their connection to family. Supporting our seniors in finding connections, either through virtual resources or in-person communities is essential to increasing their quality of life. Your donation will go towards the following; hosting digital literacy workshops to increase virtual socialization and connectivity to help with issues like reconnecting with family and friends, providing workshops to increase understanding of online services such as banking, grocery shopping and accessing government documents, increasing partnerships with seniors’ activities in the area to provide affordable and free physical activity and social programs for clients and building community through enhanced social and recreation programming to lower isolation.
