Réseau FADOQ is joining the wave of support currently sweeping Quebec. The seniors network is conducting an unprecedented courtesy call operation among its 65,000 members age 80 and over.
The goal is to reassure them, check in on them, make sure they’re safe, and ensure they have access to the necessary resources to meet their basic needs, including the ability to get supplies. No financial information is requested during these calls.
The initiative comes in addition to many other concrete actions Réseau FADOQ has taken to curb the spread of COVID-19 and inform its clientele of 535,000 people age 50 and over.
Réseau FADOQ has complied with the Legault government’s instructions by suspending all its gatherings. In applying public health guidelines in recent weeks, the seniors network asked its regional groups and all of its clubs to cancel all their group activities until further notice. Réseau FADOQ also cancelled its provincial hockey tournament and suspended its regional annual general meetings as well as some regional FADOQ Games.
Réseau FADOQ has also publicly urged its members age 70 and over and those who are more vulnerable to COVID-19 to comply with the Quebec government’s request to stay home and avoid leaving the house unless absolutely necessary.
In these times of confinement and uncertainty related to the coronavirus, Réseau FADOQ is committed to providing Quebec seniors with as much information as possible to ensure their well-being and slow the spread of COVID-19. Réseau FADOQ has even compiled a list of resources for its members in collaboration with Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux. You’ll find the list on our website (french only).
At Réseau FADOQ, we want to be part of the solution to stop the spread of COVID-19.
