The video shown below outlines the Outreach program and its importance to the community as well as the role that the United Way plays in the story.
The Outreach Program provides an enjoyable social/recreational outing once a month for isolated older adults living in the community who face challenges leaving their homes to participate in activities. The Program includes transportation to and from home, refreshments, gentle exercise, speakers, entertainment and games. Participants also enjoy a hot lunch before returning home.
The Outreach Program represents a vital piece in supporting the health and wellness of isolated older adults in our community by providing emotional support, social stimulation, health related education, gentle exercise, and a nutritional meal. As well, the respite afforded to caregivers whose loved ones attend Outreach, is a very important and practical means of providing support to this group.
