On Thursday August 13th 2020 Rotary Club President Mike Strickland presented a cheque for $5430 to Nancy Simpson, Secretary of the board of directors of Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health (Gateway CERH) to support the Lonely No More Program.
The Lonely No More (LNM) program consists of weekly teleconference calls between isolated seniors, facilitated by trained community members (volunteers). This program creates three components of support: peer support, health coaching and system navigation. The LNM program was originally piloted in 2019 and based on its success it was re-launched earlier this year. Due to the program’s positive impact and new partnership developments (e.g., MacKay Seniors Centre / Senior Centers Without Walls, Rotary Club of Goderich etc.), Lonely No More was able to offer weekly chats for the past 7 months (January to July 2020). The program is expected to start up again this fall.
Gateway CERH would like to thank Rotary Club of Goderich, the IODE, MacKay Seniors Centre / Senior Centers Without Walls and the University of Waterloo School of Pharmacy for supporting this rural based initiative this past year as well as our volunteers and leadership team. Gateway CERH looks forward to serving our rural seniors again this fall.
