Information Service for seniors (SIA)

Volunteer Action Centers (CAB) provide information for the needs of the senior citizens.

Information Service for seniors 

The CAB and the volunteer help guide the seniors in their understanding of the processed information.  They must ensure that the senior citizen find and understand the information meeting their needs. The CAB and the volunteers do not have the mandate to replace the agencies and the various existing government services. They can not execute the steps on behalf of the seniors, but rather with them.

Volunteers accompanying the seniors in this approach to tracking and understanding the information, are disseminators and promoters of the information.

They must ensure that the senior is located and include information about a program or a Government Department meeting their needs.
