Community Support Services
Community Support Services (CSS) helps seniors and caregivers remain independent, healthy and enjoying quality of life. CSS is operated by the Guelph Wellington Seniors Association (GWSA).
Services include education, programs and support for age-related concerns, eating well, gentle exercise and social engagement. Services are provided in participants’ homes and in community locations to reach isolated older adults who face barriers to participate such as transportation, poor health, ability to pay and lack of support. Membership in the GWSA is not necessary to receive services, and fees are low or no cost.
Front line service delivery is facilitated by specialized staff and trained, senior peer volunteers, who through their life experiences, provide encouragement, support, empowerment and the skills for self-management.
