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.

Help support this program today with an donation that will benefit a lonely or isolated senior within all Langley communities.

Fighting Senior Isolation in the Langley Community

HORTICULTURAL PROGRAM

Horticultural Therapy (HT) is a  formal practice that uses plants, horticultural activities and the garden landscape to promote well-being for its participants. HT is accepted as a beneficial and effective therapeutic modality within a broad range of rehabilitative, vocational and community settings.  In addition, HT helps improve cognitive abilities, task initiative, language skills and socialization.

MUSIC PROGRAM

Music Therapy at Langley Lodge engages people with music. Research suggests that it heals the body and the mind. Despite impaired memory capacity, individuals with dementia respond positively to the music of their youth. People with disabilities also have shown improved mobility by walking to the beat of a song.  Music elevates serotonin and melatonin levels which helps residents maintain a positive demeanor.

PASTORAL CARE

Our resident’s spiritual needs and preferences are seen as integral to the care and healing process. This important level of care allows us to make decisions that may involve an ethical or spiritual component. Furthermore, our weekly pastoral care sessions with our pastor Tony allow for a non-denomination forum that the devout can experience their faith and ask any questions they may have.

ART PROGRAM

Art Therapy uses the creative process of art-making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. It is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behaviour, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight.
