Description of project

Tea & Conversation (T&C) is a weekly outreach program that ensures that even the most vulnerable seniors in the community are not isolated and alone.

As Calgary's aging population increases, so do the number of isolated seniors. Research shows that severe and prolonged social isolation leads to alarming increases in loneliness, depression, chronic health issues and emergency room visits.

Confederation Park 55+ Activity Centre's Tea & Conversation program proactively combats these issues through a weekly event which promotes social interaction through dance, music, and stimulating conversation in a supportive environment. An average of 500 participants a month build and nourish vital friendships, and access supportive social services. For many, it is their only opportunity to get out and socialize during the week. T&C is made possible through the generosity of donors and sponsors
