Get Involved This Spring!

Get Involved This Spring!

 

Research shows that an estimated 30% of Canadian Seniors are at risk of becoming socially isolated. According to the International Federation of Ageing, “the number one emerging issue facing seniors in Canada is keeping older people socially connected and active”.

Maintaining social interactions throughout our lives is essential for our emotional and physical well-being. Social interaction can be achieved by getting involved in the community and engaging with other people, including loved ones.

Below are some resources in the Peel Region to explore this Spring!

Join Programs –

  • You may be surprised to hear that there are several activities for seniors across Peel Region. Through online engagement such as joining Facebook Groups and/or visiting a nearby community centre, you can find activities such as Volunteering, Group Exercise Classes, Gardening Clubs, Book Clubs, etc.

Furthermore, Elder Help Peel offers programs to help seniors to connect and stay active within the community. Our Friendly Visitor Program matches Volunteers and Seniors with similar interests; they meet in person, or on the phone. The Senior’s Centre Without Walls program facilitates educational webinars and Health & Wellness series via Zoom or Phone calls. Elder Help Peel provides various ways for Seniors to maintain social relationships and build relationships in their community.
