Seniors Peer Outreach Program

A Volunteer-based Outreach Service for Seniors

The Seniors Peer Outreach Program is a volunteer-driven service that provides person-to-person outreach to connect with isolated and at-risk seniors in our community.

The project is funded in part by the Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Program.

Seniors are those who are:

  • 55+ years of age
  • Living alone or are geographically isolated from family and friends
  • and may be experiencing one or more additional challenges, such as:
    • changes in physical functioning or health status;
    • early cognitive changes, such as memory loss and confusion,
    • limited financial means that are a barrier for participation in seniors activities,

and these are having an impact on the senior's ability to maintain social connections and general health & wellbeing.

Program Offerings:

  • Regular contact by phone or in-person with a trained and supervised peer volunteer;
  • An invitation to attend a weekly social, recreation or music event and special occasions;
  • Enjoy a nutritious, Dietitican approved, lunch at Langley Lodge once weekly;
  • Private bus transportation provided to the weekly program at Langley Lodge;
  • Opportunities to meet other seniors, and develop new connections;
  • There is no cost to participate; no fees or memberships;
  • Volunteers will liaise with the Director of Care, who will engage the Family Physician if required; eg. if a health issue becomes apparent to the volunteer.
