What is Seniors’ Centre Without Walls?
The Seniors’ Centre Without Walls (SCWW) is as simple as just picking up your telephone!
Through the use of multi-person phone calls, SCWW provides the opportunity for participants to join in on health and wellness seminars, educational lectures, brain-stimulating activities, listen to live musical entertainment, join in on general conversations, and make new and meaningful friendships – all from the comforts of home! It works just the same as attending a class or a lecture at the centre, but instead it is facilitated over the telephone. Have a look at our SCWW Program Flyer for more information.

group of people; how the variety of programs
would keep us informed…and sure enough, it
was my ticket out of a life unlived…” -Eleanor
