Senior Pride Online lends free tablets with LTE network connections to 2SLGBTQ+ seniors (65+) unable to access a device and/or internet connection of their own. Participants may keep the tablets for a period of 2 to 4 weeks, and rental priority will be given to those in need of primary and mental health care. We are offering both in-person and mailed delivery of devices, and can provide in-person support for setting up tablets with the help of our Tablet Rental Support Workers. This program is in direct response to COVID-19, which has only exacerbated pre-existing risk factors amongst 2SLGBTQ+ seniors. Our goals are to increase 2SLGBTQ+ seniors’ access to their community, increase their access to virtual care, and reduce experiences of isolation and loneliness.
SENIOR PRIDE ONLINE APPLICANT FORM
Tablets will be dispensed to program participants beginning the week of August 24th. This form is to apply for a free tablet from MAX Ottawa and the Ottawa Senior Pride Network. Tablets will come with an LTE mobile internet connection and can be borrowed for a period of 2-4 weeks. This service is intended to reach two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, and asexual (2SLGBTQIA+) seniors (65+) living in the nation’s capital region. All applicants will be notified as soon as a tablet becomes available for them.
