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.
The Raging Grannies (or just “Raging Grannies”) are activist organizations in many cities and towns in Canada, the United States, and in other countries. They are social justice activists, all women old enough to be grandmothers, who dress up in clothes that mock stereotypes of older women, and sing songs at protests. They typically write the lyrics themselves, putting their political messages to the tunes of well-known songs. Their activism includes peace and environmental causes.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raging_Grannies
There Montreal Group has a website: https://themontrealraginggrannies.com/
There are documentaries with Trailers entitled Granny Power from Magnus Isacsson https://www.grannypowerthefilm.com/ and Two Raging Grannies from UpNorth films https://vimeo.com/ondemand/tworaginggrannies that could be presented in a residence.
The Raging Grannies I have met don’t live in a residence but they can visit residences to present their songs and their activities/campaigns.
