Testimonials

I feel back in the loop again, like I am needed and have a place. I feel purpose in my day and that my life has more meaning again. Bill, 87.
The VSC became like a lifeline to me when I was unable to get out of the house. It reduced social isolation in my life, increased my motivation to lose weight and become healthier, and has really helped me feel comfortable in my own skin.
The VSC has been wonderful for me at this time in my life. I am having health issues and suddenly I am home a lot more than I used to be. Before the VSC I was feeling very isolated and lonely. Being ill has meant that I haven’t been able to go to church, visit friends or be an active part of my community. The Virtual Social Centre has been a lifeline. I can attend a virtual church group, chat with friends whenever I want, and see the world through the remote-streaming sessions. There is so much to do on the VSC – I love to watch the live sessions, but I also enjoy watching everything on catch-up as well.
My technology skills have improved. I went from feeling wary and hesitant about technology to feeling confident. I explored the tablet and found all kinds of games like spelling, jigsaw puzzles and crosswords.
