We are excited to present our impact report for 2020, which documents all of last year's accomplishments! All of our work so far would not have been possible without the generous support of our volunteers and greater community. We thank you for supporting SAGE in 2020 and ask for your continued support for an even greater 2021. Please continue to support long-term care homes and keep an eye out for our new initiatives coming later this year! The full impact report can be viewed here or downloaded here.
Hannan has been a volunteer with SAGE since June and has actively participated in Companion Calls at The O’Neill Centre. She joined SAGE to support residents in long-term care and to advocate for their mental health. During her conversations with the residents, she shares her ambitions and her interests with them and has heard all about their past experiences. The residents are always excited to speak with Hannan and are fascinated by what she has to say. In the future, Hannan hopes to continue doing calls with residents and to meet residents in-person once it is safe to do so. We thank Hannan for keeping residents company during the pandemic and for giving back to the elderly community.
Recently, we had an opportunity to speak with Natasha Fatah on CBC Toronto about Companion Calls and why keeping seniors connected to their communities during the pandemic is important for their well-being. We thank Natasha and CBC Toronto for helping us share our mission and hope everyone is continuing to keep themselves safe and healthy while vaccines are being distributed!
