Outreach

Helping others never grows old

Many seniors are unaware of the numerous resources and support services that exist to help them.

The objective of Westend Seniors Activity Centre’s Outreach Program is to aid and support seniors by connecting them with necessary resources within the community – and helping to reduce isolation.

This is being achieved by offering direct support to our members (in-reach) or by going into the community (outreach). This can take place face-to-face at our facility on an appointment or walk-in basis, or over the phone/ email. In other cases, it will involve a home visit.

Outreach workers support seniors on a number of levels: by offering referrals, advocacy, assistance with form completion, emotional support, needs assessments and consultations.

We provide information and assistance that includes (but is not limited to) the following areas:

  • Independent housing and supportive living
  • Navigating the health care system
  • Seniors benefits
  • Finance and banking
  • Elder abuse
  • Meals and nutrition
  • Mental health and grief services
  • Transportation
  • Wills
  • Isolation
  • And more

Westend Seniors Home Support Programs

We understand, that maintaining the independence and emotional connection of being able to stay in your own home is a common concern for seniors. Sometimes all that is required is some assistance with maintenance, security and daily living.
