We are excited to announce our newest partner organization for Companion Calls: Progress Place! Progress Place is a psychosocial rehabilitation centre that supports adults recovering from mental illness by providing hope, opportunity, community, and so much more. Every week, 5 of our SAGE volunteers, Sinamys, Jessica, Vienna, Sneha, and Maham, connect with members of Progress Place’s seniors program via telephone
We are so grateful to Progress Place for the opportunity to work together and to our volunteers for their time and dedication. You can learn more about Progress Place and the incredible work they do at progressplace.org!
We are proud to announce that SAGE execs Saloni and Cynthia have jointly published a written piece, Role of Youth in Bridging the Technological Divide for Seniors, in The Canadian Geriatrics Society's National Geriatrics Interest Group (NGIG) Journal! Their article discusses the isolation experienced by seniors and youth alike due to the pandemic and consequent lockdowns, while encouraging the utilization of technology to reconnect seniors with their communities. We greatly thank CGS and NGIG for giving us the opportunity to highlight issues that our elderly population have been facing for years. The piece can be found on page 16 of the full publication at bit.ly/2ST7HgI.
