Who We Are


Chatting to Wellness has been providing Chatting Sessions to isolated and abandoned seniors in retirement homes across Southern Ontario since 2017. Our team of student volunteers visit weekly, to talk about anything like: family, hobbies, TV, friends, past, etc. to make seniors feel cared for and show them that they matter. 

Now we're offering these Chatting Sessions to all seniors, across Canada. For Free. Over the Phone.

We have hundreds of volunteers register that have a deep care for the needs of isolated and lonely seniors. Will you support as well?


People of all ages can register here to be added to our volunteer list. We will reach out as we take on more volunteers.

The volunteering process involves an interview, a Vulnerable Sector Check, and a training. The process is simple and enjoyable, but we are focused on ensuring all volunteers are responsible and trustworthy individuals.

Connect the Unconnected Project

We think anyone who wants to help others, should be able to. Our Connect the Unconnected Project aims to engage everyone in supporting the seniors in their communities, if you know them personally or not.

The Connect the Unconnected Project asks community members to share a flyer that informs their community of the support available from Chatting to Wellness

Print the flyer and post it in your building, on a community bulletin, a mail box, hand them out to individuals/mail boxes, etc.

After posting or sharing the flyer, take a picture and send it to us! We would love to share it on our socials to inspire others to get involved as well. Send to


Ambassador Program

Chatting to Wellness has created a program for individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of seniors, to help those in their communities, beyond just Chatting Sessions.

Ambassadors will be provided a few impactful tasks each month for individuals to complete within their community. These tasks can consist of putting up our information posters around the community, connecting with local organizations, facilitating local events or initiatives, and more.

Ambassadors are expected to commitment of 5-10 hours per month.


As a small organization with big impact, we need your donations to keep going.

Chatting to Wellness was founded by Mahad Shahzad in 2017, he was 18 at the time, and funded Chatting to Wellness out of pocket. 

It's the donation that you make, that will help another senior, who may not have anyone else.
