SENIORS NEED US. WE NEED YOU.
June is Seniors’ Month. It is an opportunity to show your support for 2500+ seniors in the community that North York Seniors Centre is assisting in many forms during COVID-19. With your help, we can provide a social connection and services for those tremendously affected by the isolation that the pandemic has enforced.
Isolation is especially challenging for the ageing population because of many factors such as disability, loss of a spouse, reduced social networks, transportation issues, low self-esteem, poor health and gender. North York Seniors Centre knows that and has been effectively fighting against isolation for over 45 years.
In March, the Centre had shut down the Active Living Centre and our A Day Away Club facility due to COVID-19. It disrupted at least 40 programs scheduled for the spring and another 40 planned for the summer leading to physical isolation for over one thousand seniors in the community.
Since then, we have modified our programs and services. In addition to providing essential services for over 500 isolated seniors, such as in-home assistance, transportation, grocery shopping and delivery, we have been offering daily virtual programs through our social media platforms, and communication via telephone.
COME TOGETHER WITH US AND STAND UP FOR THE SENIORS DURING COVID-19. SENIORS NEED US. WE NEED YOU.
