Due to COVID-19, Niagara Gatekeepers has taken a number of measures to expand services to support isolated and / or vulnerable seniors in the community.
Niagara Gatekeepers is a phone line referral service that anyone can call to help connect an at-risk senior who is 55 years of age or older with programs and services to help them stay safe and independent at home.
Call 905-684-0968 if you know of a senior who may need the help of an agency. The Gatekeeper line is open 8:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m., 365 days a year.
Information provided will be forwarded to one of our partner agencies. The agency will contact the senior and arrange services to help the senior maintain independence and stay safe at home. Services are only provided with the consent of the senior.
All information is kept confidential and callers may remain anonymous.
