On line or via the phone
Vent Over Tea is a free active listening service that pairs people who need to vent with a trained empathetic listener to chat. Normally it is done in a local coffee shop but at the moment it can be held online or on the phone. Based in Montréal and founded in April 2015 by McGill psychology graduates, the goal is to provide a casual, confidential, and non-judgmental outlet for members of the community. https://ventovertea.com/en/
Reservation is done online. Elders that must stay indoor could benefit from this service if they have access to the internet or if a member of their family or an employee of their residence could reserve for them.
