What We Do
We offer Phone Chats to seniors, over the phone, for free, across Canada. Our Phone Chats are an enjoyable, relaxing, and friendly option for seniors who want someone to talk to.
Since 2017, Chatting to Wellness used to visit retirement residences and long term care facilities across Ontario providing in-person Chatting Sessions to seniors. Now, we provide Phone Chats to all seniors, living anywhere in Canada, every weekday night.
Chatting to Wellness has been featured in and/or supported by:
Loneliness is a problem experienced by many seniors across Canada
