Check In & Chat


Research shows that about 1 in 5 Canadians experience some level of loneliness or isolation. One of the most common causes of loneliness is social isolation from living alone or having a small network of friends and family to communicate with. The most at-risk group is seniors. 

Our Check In & Chat program has locally trained volunteers who makes weekly or bi-weekly phone calls to our participants to help them stay connected to the community. 

If you would like to be part of, or know someone who could benefit from our new program, we would like to hear from you. 

To register or for more information about participating in this program, please call Geoff Van Geem at geoff.vangeem@segchc.ca or 519-986-2222 at extension 6375.
