EMERGENCY SOCIAL WORK
EMERGENCY SOCIAL WORK RESPONSE
SeniorConnect continues to be concerned about the health and safety of those most vulnerable older adults who have no supports and are not identified by traditional referral methods. These older adults are at an increased risk of social isolation due to the COVID-19.
SeniorConnect provides an urgent same day social work response for older adults identified as being at-risk or in crisis and is available outside regular hours.
If you are concerned about an older adult and believe they are at-risk, please call The Distress Centre 24-hr help line at 403.266.4357 and explain your concerns to the call operator. A SeniorConnect social worker will address immediate concerns to stabilize the crisis and connect them to appropriate longer-term supports.
