Older Adult (55+) Social Activity Survey – Simcoe County
Want to increase your health, happiness and belonging? Do you have ideas that would help us ensure every older adult has a social network and the opportunity to engage in community activities? Community Connection is a non-profit agency leading a Seniors Project in Simcoe County. We are developing programs and services to meet the needs of older adults and need your input.
Research shows that being socially connected improves physical health and mental health, increases life expectancy and reduces risk of dementia. Life’s circumstances can sometimes lead a person to be less involved in the community than they want, and we are working towards building our community to help those older adults be more connected.
We value our older adults and want each of them to enjoy good health, happiness and belonging. Your ideas will be used to make sure we are on the right track. This project is led by Community Connection/211 and guided by community members and service providers.
Please complete this 10 minute survey before September 30, 2021. Feel free to skip any questions you don’t want to answer.

It really feels like family here. “There is one word to describe the Residence – it’s ideal. I really can’t say enough good things about it. The staff are wonderful, the meals are great.
A huge difference......“My patient M loves this program & it has made a huge difference in her life!”
“The reason I have given a high rating of satisfaction with your services is the personalized and committed service your staff provided to my Aunt. If this reflects the general service that Wendat provides, I have to congratulate you.”
“Our organization looks forward to working with your staff each and every time they come into our facility. Their knowledge, expertise and relationship with the clients are evident and contribute positively to the resident’s transition within our home. Our Director of Care requests Wendat’s involvement when reviewing all potential applicants as it is an important part of making the client’s transition into long term care a smooth one.”
My mom has been in hospital for just over a month. . . I cannot tell you how wonderful your staff and the Wendat program is! For the first time in a month I feel like someone cares about who my mom is and what her needs are. Thank you.”
“The home visits took the pressure off me as the care giver. My husband really enjoyed them! Just knowing I could call anytime for support was so helpful. I also appreciated the concern for my welfare and how I was coping.
The overall care and attention to detail that our father has received from (Wendat Nurse) has been truly exceptional. In our challenging health care environment and through a difficult time, Sandy has always taken the time to show she really cares and assist in any way she can. Thank you to you and your organization for the help and support received from Sandy and Wendat. It has made a world of difference.”
(Your staff) made me feel that I still had a life worth living. She helped me build back my self-esteem and get rid of my depression and self-worthlessness and generally made me feel better after each and every visit. I can only say `thank God` for a place called Wendat and the good people like (your staff) who help people in distress. In closing, I thank you as well and in the future if funds exist I shall certainly think of Wendat and donate to such a worthy organization. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

All because of Wendat My sister began attending Wendat in October 2013. Her life was beginning to turn around and she found the social support she received from Wendat to be extremely helpful.
