Combating Isolation Through Companionship
Chatting to Wellness connects youth and seniors to sit and chat. We combat isolation and loneliness, while improving the mental health of seniors.
Chatting to Wellness brings youth on a weekly basis to retirement homes to engage with residents. Many seniors in retirement homes lack company and companionship, which can lead to depression and anxiety.
Our trained Chatters engage seniors in meaningful conversation, allowing them an outlet to express their thoughts and feelings. We keep seniors mentally active, socially engaged, improve their mood and, over all, improve mental health.
