What is Friendly Visiting?
Friendly Visiting is a free service that matches seniors who would benefit from a weekly visit with a trained supervised volunteer.
What kind of Friendly Visiting services are offered?
Once a week, your Friendly Visitor will visit you, where you can play games, read, or simply have a conversation. These visits are about including your hobbies and interests.
If you would prefer to have scheduled calls with a volunteer, regular phone calls are arranged.
Friendly Shopping & Escorting
Volunteers can also help with grocery shopping and escorting seniors to appointments such as banking and medical appointments.
Where is Friendly Visiting available?
SPLC's friendly visiting is available to older adults living South of Steeles to North of Ellesmere, and East of Victoria Park to West of McCowan.
