  2. Work with our partners to receive service requests or referrals;
  3. Make friendly phone calls to invite seniors to speak up and gain confidence in them to denounce any form of abuse or abuse (prevention, awareness and support);
  4. Organize, in collaboration with committed and trained volunteers, friendship visits using the “Going To Each Other” strategy;
  5. Facilitate face-to-face meetings by adopting the “Bring Yourself” strategy through socio-cultural and leisure activities;
  6. Referral and referencing to appropriate resources.

Match seniors with volunteers

  2. Identify the needs and expectations of seniors and volunteers;
  3. Ensure an adequate match meeting the expectations of both parties;
  4. Coordinate and ensure proper operation of twinning activities.
