Friendly Visiting

Friendly Visiting

CMOW’S Friendly Visiting Programs offer seniors and people with disabilities who have limited social interaction an opportunity to maintain healthy, happy, independent lives. Regular visits from caring volunteers, in person or over the telephone, provide friendship and support to our clients. Which visit speaks to you? 

Let’s Get Together/TeleChat

Clients are matched with volunteers who make weekly visits to their home. Visits may include chatting, reading, looking at old photos or even going for a walk.  If clients would prefer their visit over the phone we also offer TeleChat.  This program is offered free of charge, supported by United Way Greater Toronto.

 

Let’s Do Lunch

An opportunity for clients to connect with a volunteer on a regular basis while enjoying a healthy meal together. Weekly lunch visits take place in our clients’ homes, will be social in nature, and foster new friendships, and sharing. This program was made possible through a Senior’s Community Grant from the Government of Ontario. Cost to client is $6.50 to cover the cost of the meal.

 

Let’s Exercise

Volunteer lead, simple, progressive, in-home exercise allows our clients to connect socially on a weekly basis while giving them an opportunity to enhance and maintain their functional fitness, mobility and independence. 

 

Let’s Read

CMOW has partnered with Caledon Public Library’s Visiting Library Service to offer clients the opportunity to have library materials brought to their home and have a friendly visit at the same time.

 
 

CMOW’s friendly Visiting Programs may not be able to accommodate all individuals (e.g. people who cannot be left alone), cannot provide respite care, transportation to appointments or homemaking services.
