Support Seniors Outreach, Support prevention and early intervention

Life situations such as failing health, financial insecurity, abuse, or isolation can easily turn from simply being a risk to a devastating crisis for many seniors without timely intervention and support.

The growing senior population and shortages in adequate funding mean that accessing timely professional services is more difficult. Wait lists for our Outreach team average 4 to 6 weeks, but YOU can help us reduce that time.

An Urgent Response from the Community is Needed

With your donation immediate resources can be implemented to help our professional team of skilled gerontologist support workers address these situations with the following critical issues:

• prevention of rapid decline in mental health of certain seniors• decrease the likelihood of elder abuse• decrease in evictions and homelessness among older adults• decreased likelihood of depression, self-harm, alcohol abuse and drug abuse• avoid inappropriate admission to hospital and emergency care;• prevent premature placement into expensive long term care

Your donation will make a difference!
