“CRC Mobile” is a new Information and Referral project that aims to improve the quality of life for isolated and vulnerable seniors in the West Island. Working in partnership with the community, a CRC Mobile worker will reach out to isolated seniors and facilitate direct links with relevant community resources.
Isolated seniors are often unaware of the many programs and support services available in the West Island. Over 30 seniors support services operate locally, spread over 130 square kilometres. This myriad of specialized support agencies can be difficult to navigate for a senior with no existing network in place. CRC Mobile will be the bridge that helps West Island seniors connect with and access relevant programs and supports.
The CRC recently received funding from the Ministère de la Famille (ITMAV program *) to develop and implement this regional project. The project is designed to go beyond traditional methods of information and referral by offering one-on-one assistance in a location convenient for the senior, including their home.
