Senior Wish Association

Senior Wish Association

Our Inspiration
The Senior Wish Association was founded in 2011 by Barb Richards, who recognized a large sector of the senior population in her community were lonely and isolated. Realizing the personal impact of isolation and perceptions that can frame old age, Barb wanted to make a positive difference in the lives of these seniors.

The vision of the Senior Wish Association is a community that “sees” all seniors while identifying those on the margins to facilitate their inclusion. This is achieved through wish granting, companionship, recreational activities, inter-generational programs, educational opportunities for youth and families and the dissemination of health and safety best practices.
Since 2011, thousands of lonely and marginalized seniors in the Barrie area have benefited from the programs and initiatives provided by Senior Wish. The inspiration, time and hard work of our founding member, Board of Directors and dedicated volunteers have enabled us to prove the viability of the Senior Wish concept, successfully reaching seniors and giving them a sense of belonging and community.
Our program model has garnered widespread interest from communities across the province, which is why, we are actively taking measures to expand our programs while maintaining the integrity, mandate and vision of the organization. We believe in the power of people and our programs deliver on success. That is why Senior Wish strongly believes and promotes the idea that aging is not a problem – it is a lifelong journey that unites all of us.
