The Somali Canadian Seniors program identifies, and links Somali
seniors to services that support their independence such as; help with their
daily living, accessible and affordable transportation, opportunities for
recreation and socialization, individual care and firsthand information about
seniors programs in
Goals and Objectives:
The Somali Canadian Seniors program facilitates a venue for seniors from the community to gather and socialize among other seniors in an inclusive, safe, and culturally appropriate environment with a 24 hrs “help line” for seniors. This service will offer an effective way to provide callers with accurate information, support, and referrals to appropriate service providers, community-based services and resources including in-home support if necessary.
Seniors are able to do many more things on their own once they receive support in their communities. They become more active and know who to turn to for help when needed.
