MOCC WALK, TALK AND ROLL PROGRAM
There are many seniors who may be alone or in need of companionship because they are not able to maintain social contact with others. Life circumstances may require the person to have mobility issues, or speak an Aboriginal language with English being their second language. They may not have access to or drive a car and are scared to travel or go places by themselves. The Mocc, Walk, Talk and Roll Friendly Visiting Program offers seniors the opportunity to be matched with a Friendly Visitor volunteer who donates one to two hours of their time per week for regular phone contact and/or a visit. Activities may include sharing enjoyable activities such as playing board or card games, reading a newspaper or magazine aloud, going for a walk, discussing every day affairs, information about current event happening in the community or sharing cultural and/or traditional activities. These activities are discussed and mutually agreed upon.
