Program: Seniors Information Outreach
Vital Sign: Belonging & Engagement
Total Grant: $7,500
The Seniors Information Outreach team needs support in providing training workshops for targeted community networks and their key individuals who link with seniors. The goal is to provide networks with a greater capacity to inform and connect seniors to appropriate services. A minimum of ten networks will receive a presentation on services for seniors in the Capital Region, and how to access them. Telephone Line volunteers who have in-depth knowledge and expertise on seniors services will provide referrals and ongoing support to the trainees.
