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, participate in 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.

Seniors’ Centre Without Walls Basics:

  • Completely free program.
  • You do need to be a member of the Rexdale CHC Seniors Program
  • 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 about 45 – 60 minutes.
  • 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!
