SSWG Response

Social Service Worker-Gerontology (SSWG) Response Team is a group of students and alumni of a Community College in the GTA who are willing to dedicate their time to help seniors during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This group has been created to help older adults (seniors), their caregivers, long-term care and retirement home residents. We are reaching out to these groups to determine what they need most and to act as a conduit for others who want to volunteer and/or help in any way.

The team aims to provide remote support ( telephone calls, online activities), providing assistance to seniors to help them connect to other support available in their communities.

We are raising funds to buy supplies to create fidget boards/blankets, cd players and tablets so that those in isolation do not feel so alone. There is a huge demand for these items and are desperately trying to fulfill these requests but we need your help. 100% of the donations go directly for the items needed. Please understand that when there is an active outbreak that residents have to remain in their room majority if not all of their time.

Please help us make sure that our most vulnerable population is supported during these difficult times.
