What is Seniors’ Centre Without Walls?

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 Basics:

  • Completely free program.
  • You do not need to be a member of The Good Companions.
  • Programs are multi-person phone conversations (or conference calls).
  • No special equipment needed – just your average phone!
  • Call yourself in to the program, or we can call you – it’s your choice!
  • Each phone session lasts between 30-60 minutes on the phone.
  • Each phone session averages 10-15 people on the call.
  • You are able to hear each other, talk to one another, learn, and/or just have fun!

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.
