Our population is ageing, and seniors in our community are facing isolation and loneliness, leading to physical and mental health challenges. Immigrant and racialized seniors are even more vulnerable because of barriers in language and accessing community resources.
At DIVERSEcity, we have become a hub for healthy ageing services and programs for diverse seniors, helping them live healthier, independent lives. We won’t let them be forgotten or left behind.
In addition to one-on-one support services, we offer the following programs for seniors in Surrey and surrounding areas, with both in-person and virtual options:
DIVERSEcity’s Seniors TechConnect is a tablet loaning library plus one-on-one technology training for vulnerable seniors, who may have difficult accessing virtual programs and services.
DIVERSEcity can offer senior clients a tablet, enabled with data if required, on loan so they can participate in our seniors programs. The tablets come ready to use and formatted simply with seniors’ needs in mind.

Seniors TechConnect is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program. Additional funding and support from United Way and Surrey Libraries.
