Community Resources

With the help of students from Queen’s University, the Frontenac-Kingston Council On Aging Inc. has created a series of large-print, senior-friendly topical guides. These guides contain information that is both relevant and important to seniors in our community.   

Quick FixIt Friend – Can’t change the burnt-out bulb in the ceiling? Can’t get the TV remote to work? This program exists to help seniors address small problems around the home. There is no charge for this service. Simply describe the need and a community volunteer will arrive to fix it! This support is a joint effort from the Kingston-Frontenac Council on Aging and Rotary Club of Kingston. Call 613-532-2445 for help!

A Senior’s Guide to Navigating Community Resources –  The purpose of this guide is to enable independent living by providing seniors with information on community supports and services that can be used to carry out acts of daily living. From housekeeping services to in-home supports, food delivery, and meal prep, this easy-to-read guide will point you in the right direction.

KHealth  — Founded in 2019, KHealth is the first collaboration of healthcare students organizing volunteering initiatives in Kingston. It is an inter-professional organization that connects students from the Faculty of Health Sciences to the community through volunteering. Students from medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, and physical therapy are involved in implementing novel ideas to improve the well-being and health of community members.

These students are paired with elderly community members to provide weekly phone check ins and free grocery delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic.
