Supporting vulnerable seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic

We need your support, now more than ever, to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of Calgary’s seniors.

Can you imagine being a vulnerable senior confined at home, worried about meeting your most basic needs for food and medicine? Or facing an abusive situation and wondering if there’s anywhere for you to turn in these troubled times?

Seniors are among the most vulnerable to the coronavirus which can be life-threating for many. To help keep our community safe, Kerby Centre is temporarily shutting its doors to the public but we’re committed to continuing our vital outreach services to support the most vulnerable seniors in Calgary.

In response to the ever growing need, Kerby Centre is expanding our grocery delivery program (Thrive) to provide at risk seniors and those in self isolation due to the coronavirus with much needed groceries, prescriptions and frozen meals. Our Elder Abuse Line will remain open to support seniors facing abuse and the Kerby Rotary Shelter will continue to provide safe and secure shelter for seniors fleeing abuse. Seniors in our on-site Adult Day Program will now benefit from our outreach activities, home visits and pre-made frozen meals. And seniors seeking information resources about important things like housing and benefits can still reach us by phone.

Our important work for Calgary’s seniors and our city will continue but we can’t do it alone - we need your help.

Your donation will help our most vulnerable seniors feel safe and secure knowing that they are being supported and cared for during these challenging times. Your donation will help Kerby Centre to stay strong and unwavering in our support of Calgary’s amazing seniors. We are in this together.
