In times of COVID-19 social distancing, regular human connection has become more difficult for everyone, especially for the aging population or those who have significant health risks to consider. Envision Counselling and Support Centre wants to help bridge the distance between people through expanded services to provide more interaction for those who need it.

Bridging the Distance, a program that was piloted in Estevan, has increased its delivery area to include Weyburn and rural areas within the service area of Envision Counselling. This program specifically offers support and connection for individuals 55+ experiencing isolation in Southeast Saskatchewan. If a family member or individual would like counselling, or just to talk, they can call the office to connect with a counsellor. To limit challenges, this program can be accessed from the comfort of your own home via telephone or video chat.
