Service Details
Description:
Seniors’ Centre Without Walls (SCWW) is a community outreach program to support vulnerable and isolated seniors and adults with physical disabilities who may find it difficult to leave home for extended periods of time due to financial constraints, transportation difficulties, and/or health and mobility issues.

Through the use of conference calls, SCWW provides the opportunity for participants to obtain pertinent health-related information through direct access and conversations with professionals from their community, later-life-learning opportunities, participation in brain-stimulating activities, and most importantly, to feel part of a community and opportunity to create new and meaningful friendships.
