No Islander Alone Support for Seniors

Hospice PEI launched the No Islander Alone program in response to COVID-19 to support seniors who are isolated from their communities by the pandemic. 

Specially trained volunteers of Hospice PEI are available to provide wellness checks and support by phone to seniors across Prince Edward Island. Volunteers can also help seniors and families to navigate and identify any additional supports required.

How to participate

If you are a PEI senior, or know of someone who is and would benefit from the program, here's how to participate:

  1. Call Hospice PEI to enrol and your name (or the name of your family member or friend) will be placed on a call list;
  2. You can expect to receive a regular call from a caring and compassionate volunteer of Hospice PEI. This same volunteer will continue to check in and connect on a weekly basis.

If you are a community organization that works with isolated and vulnerable seniors regularly, you may wish to also contact Hospice PEI to make connections for individuals in your network.

The No Islander Alone initiative is a partnership with United Way PEI and funded by the Government of Canada New Horizons for Seniors program.
