The Mission Statement on what they are and what they do:
We believe that seniors enjoy talking to other older people who have similar Life experiences. Every senior regardless of race or religion, also has a right to live a full independent, dignified life. Further we believe that Senior Peer Counsellors being of similar age and experience, can act as the vehicle for seniors to help them regain or maintain their independence allowing them to live with dignity.
Our goals are to help maintain the mental health and well being of older adults through a program of peer support. To help promote the personal power of older adults so that they can make informed decisions for themselves by investigating, understanding and weighing all the options available.
