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 comfort 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.
Seniors’ Centre Without Walls is proud to partner with Barry’s Bay and Area Senior Citizens Home Support to help grow the program in our rural communities.
“[Rachel] told me how I would be part of a vibrant
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

The Good Companions will reopen its doors on: Monday, August 9th. Please review our reopening guidelines here.
In order to attend the Centre for lunch, programs or social visits, everyone must pre-register up to 48 hours prior to attending. Pre-registration is solely by telephone to avoid any duplication or errors at 613-236-0428. In order to maintain social distancing, we will be opening our doors based on cohort groups (Red group: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Blue group: Tuesdays and Thursdays). We ask that you choose one cohort, and maintain your visits to these days of the week for the time being.
Our summer programs will be held via Zoom. An updated program guide can be found on our website here. In person classes are expected for the Fall session.
In the meantime, we continue to provide foot care on alternating Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please contact us to book an appointment: 613-236-0428 or email@example.com
We also continue to provide 3 programs per day through our telephone-based program, Seniors’ Centre Without Walls. Click here to see the current 2021 Program Guide.
