Do you sometimes feel lonely and unsure of how to access or ask for support?
When living alone, CHATS telephone reassurance and virtual visiting can go a long way. A quick hello to check in not only allows older adults to connect but also to ask any questions they might have.
CHATS Visiting programs, which include Telephone Reassurance, Virtual Visiting, and Friendly Visiting provide older adults with FREE regular security checks by CHATS’ volunteers.
My mum lives in a retirement home in Newmarket that was in lockdown due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. No family visits or leaving of the retirement home were allowed. [During this time] CHATS provided weekly telephone reassurance calls. My mum says it was so great to hear a friendly voice and a different voice of support outside of her family.
