Seniors’ Centre Without Walls (SCWW) is easy to join and enjoy for free. Now seniors in Renfrew County and area can be part of a community from the comfort of their own home. No computer or internet needed, just a phone call connects participants with educational, health and wellness, travelogues, local history and games sessions twice a day five days a week including Christmas and New Year’s Eves. Seniors are not alone when they join this interactive telephone-based virtual seniors’ centre. It’s fun, free and easy!
Winter affects seniors more than most. If you or someone you know is finding it difficult to get out and be part of the community, Seniors’ Centre Without Walls is a virtual, dependable support group and learning centre. Try it out, spread the word. For more information or to register, please contact Noemie Gatien with Barry’s Bay and Area Senior Citizens Home Support at 613-756-2772 ext. 3.
One of our participants recently said, “I’m 95 years old, I don’t go out. Every Wednesday I’m looking forward to my program, and although I have never met anyone face to face, I feel like I know them. It’s my family.”
