In September, we launched our new online platform called SHARE (Socialization, Health, Awareness, Recreation, and Education) which allows older adults to continue to engage in programs and services despite COVID- 19 restrictions. This platform can be accessed at sharevirtually.com. Our programs include Recreational Day Program classes, Better At Home services, Caregiver and Family Services, as well as Community Services such as Cooking & Social Circles. You can also register for our Seniors’ Centre Without Walls telephone-based program through SHARE.
It’s important to connect with others during this time of isolation more than ever before. As such, our programs and services have adapted to COVID-19 to ensure that we can continue providing services, as well as extending these services to a wider audience. Since our programs will be held online and over the phone, we are able to reach out to people not just in our neighborhoods, but throughout the province and beyond.
