Using a simple teleconferencing system, the SCWW is a new initiative that will bring free programs/services to isolated seniors and adults with physical disabilities. It will remove present barriers for those who cannot access recreation centres in person due to financial constraints, transportation, illness and/or mobility issues. Clients will have access to health, wellness, recreational and education programs, while establishing friendships and creating a new sense of belonging to the community and empowerment without having to leave their homes. All they need is a touch-tone phone. We are looking for positive, friendly, welcoming, non-judgemental volunteers who have experience with, or who are interested in facilitating and moderating weekday sessions. Volunteers are given some flexibility in their sessions, and maybe able to facilitate some programs from home. Some activities/programs: Book Clubs; Fun Facts; Did you know?; Riddles/Jokes; Brain Teasers; Current Events; Biographies; Old Time Radio Plays; Music Musings and many more!
