Seniors as Mentors and Leaders Project

 

Social isolation can be deadly, and particularly for older adults. In response to this critical issue, the Social Planning Council of Cambridge North Dumfries is facilitating the Seniors as Mentors and Leaders Project.
 
This project seeks to prepare volunteers, who are older adults themselves, to act as mentors and peer supports for other older adults in Cambridge. Project mentors engage in regular one on one visits with older adults who are socially isolated, or at risk of becoming isolated, in addition to offering group activities and connecting participants to community resources. Our goal is to make a lasting impact on issues of social isolation among local seniors by promoting and facilitating social interaction, community participation, and volunteerism.
 
If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering with us, or in receiving visits from one of our existing volunteers, please contact Jason McLaughlin at 519-623-1713 x223 or jason@spccnd.org.
