Friendly Calls to Seniors
Status of Women Council of the NWT launched a New Program for Seniors that was inspired by local seniors. These seniors felt there was a need for a program that would match seniors living in the NWT with a volunteer senior from Yellowknife who would phone regularly to provide support and social contact.
The program was a great success and will be handed over to the Yellowknife Seniors' Society in the near future.
Any senior living in the NWT who would like to connect with another senior and receive a call for support and social contact is welcome to join the program.
Seniors self refer to the program, and there is no cost to sign up for the program.
Any senior living in Yellowknife who would like to volunteer to make the calls is invited to contact us to apply.
