Imagine how it is to feel isolated and lonely, miss social outings because you live on a fixed income, be restricted by physical ailments, live far away from entertainment venues — to need a break, even for an hour, to lift your spirits and energize your soul.
That’s what thousands of seniors in Ontario wake up to each and every day. Nothing to look forward to, no one to share memories with … just another empty day. These forgotten seniors could be relatives, friends, neighbours, members of your community. They’ve worked hard all their lives, saved to provide a better future for their families — and now they’re alone. Occasionally someone remembers to send a card, call or visit for a few minutes — a small ray of sunshine in an otherwise bleak day.
