Accompaniment: The Little Brothers long-term accompaniment offering is one of the most effective solutions against solitude and loneliness. A volunteer companion can arrange to see a Great Friend every two weeks.
Celebration and Outings: Little Brother’s celebrates Christmas, Easter and the International Day of Older Persons on October 1. Little Brothers is proud to arrange a diverse lineup of activities that give Great Friends the chance to leave the solitude of their everyday lives behind, if only for a short time.
Vacation Getaways: Great Friends can take a trip to one of the vacation lodges for the day, overnight or for anywhere up to a full week
Quality of Life and Senior Wishes: Great Friends are allowed to shop free of charge at the La Boutique thrift shop in Montreal, featuring a wide range of donated items that can facilitate their day-to-day tasks.
One on One Visits: Through the home visit program, severely isolated Great Friends can benefit from the support, empathy and TLC of the dedicated volunteers.
Alzheimer’s Disease and Cognitive Decline: Individuals who have various types and severities of cognitive decline and memory loss are accepted for accompaniment and are welcome at Little Brothers.
End of Life Commitment: When a Great Friend enters the final phase of palliative care, it is made sure that they are watched over and surrounded by love.
