Wellness Phone Caller

A community outreach program ensuring wellness calls to adults and seniors living in isolation.

The aim of the Wellness Calls Cavendish initiative is to provide support, reassurance, and connection to adults and seniors who are at particular risk now for social isolation, given that many of their regular community programs have been suspended temporarily or permanently during the coronavirus outbreak.

Volunteers are recruited to work remotely from home and are assigned a client to contact by phone on a weekly basis.

Clientele served: CIUSSS West Central Montreal Health Network clients living in the Cote St. Luc, Notre Dame de Grace, Snowdon West, Hampstead and Montreal West boroughs. We serve the French, English and multi-lingual communities of our city.
Volunteers can volunteer from anywhere as long as they are willing to use their own phone service.

Goals of program:

1) To offer reassurance and support to clients during and post Covid-19 pandemic.

2) To encourage stimulating conversation with the clients.

3) To reduce the social isolation clients are experiencing.
