A program through Senior Care 360 that connects volunteers with the seniors, providing a socially stimulating environment for the elders as a way to improve their quality of life.
About Senior Care 360
Senior Care 360 is an initiative that provides at-home medical care for senior citizens that are unable to travel to a medical facility. We also work to create connectivity and more transparency between the medical practitioners and the patients as well as their families, in order to provide quality care.

A Calgary group is looking for volunteers to spend time with local seniors through its Complementary Companionship Program. "The hope is that with the program we send students in pairs to seniors for an hour or two conversation," said Zaidi.

Providing companionship to the elderly means building friendships and providing support so you can foster meaningful relationships and explore the values and community of the seniors in Calgary. Activities may include making pleasant conversation, playing board games, listening to music, reading books together and many more.
